Slieve Gullion councillor Roisín Mulgrew has welcomed a raft of local road improvements which she says will make South Armagh roads safer.

Commenting on the announcement by the Department of Regional Development that the Carrickananny Road to the junction of the Tullyah Road will be completely resurfaced, Councillor Mulgrew said,

“This resurfacing work has been necessary for some time now so I am delighted that it will now commence. Roads Service are estimating that the road will be closed from 9.00am until 4.30pm from Monday 17th February until Saturday 1st March so drivers can expect some disruption during this period.”

Councillor Mulgrew has also been involved in making safe a dangerous junction between the Newtown Road and Sturgan Brae.

“This junction has been the scene of many accidents over the years” Councillor Mulgrew said, “Indeed many residents here have experienced vehicles coming off the road and smashing into their gardens.

“I am delighted that following a multi-agency meeting which I attended it has been agreed that new high visibility signage, slow road markings and new speed reducing chevrons will be put in place.

She added, “These new measures will be installed in March and I hope that their combined effect will be to slow vehicles at this dangerous stretch of road.”
