Crotlieve Sinn Fein Councillor Oksana McMahon has welcomed a response from Department for Infrastructure (DFI) that traffic calming measures in Ballyholland and Mayobridge are being assessed.

Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor McMahon said, “I have been campaigning for speeding reduction and traffic calming measures thought out the Crotlieve area for several months.



“Having received a great number of complaints from local residents about the dangers of speeding though the local village Sinn Féin representatives are working closely with DFI and the PSNI to resolve the issues.

“It is for this reason that I am delighted to inform the residents of Ballyholland that a number of traffic safety measures are to be implemented.



“Road markings, some of which are currently unreadable, will be refreshed and the Village Gateway Signage is to be improved with red patches, 30 mph Road markings and rounders being provided.

She added, “It is also welcome news that Mayobridge is being considered for Controlled Pedestrian Crossing with the provision of a pedestrian guard rail at the mini roundabout and traffic islands on approaches to it.”
