SDLP Slieve Gullion Councillor Geraldine Donnelly has welcomed commitments from Roads Service to carry out improvements to the B30 Newry to Crossmaglen Road.

Councillor Donnelly says she has raised the issue with the local Section Office on a number of occasions.

Councillor Donnelly explained, “The Newry-Crossmaglen Road though Silverbridge is one of South Armagh’s busiest roads and yet over recent months the road has been let fall into a terrible state of disrepair in places and I have been lobbying DRD Roads Service for improvements and repairs.

“Roads Service has confirmed that the stretch from the Aughanduff Road to the Maophoner Road is to be repaired immediately.

“In addition to this, following on from my request, Roads Service are in the process of completing the preparatory works in the area around Creggan Bridge and this section of the road is to be resurfaced when the preparatory works have been completed,” she continued.

“People are constantly contacting me regarding the state of some of our rural roads, many of the potholes are extremely dangerous and causing damage to some peoples cars.

Councillor Donnelly added, “I know that the Section Engineer and her staff in the local Section Office have been making strenuous efforts to ensure repairs are carried out as swiftly as possible and despite the addition monies secured by local Minister Danny Kennedy there continues to be stretches of roads which still need investment.”
