Fews area Sinn Féin Councillor Pat Mc Ginn has welcomed proposals from Roads Service to provide new markings and enhanced signage to raise driver awareness of the existing speed limits currently in force along the Millvale Road. The elected representative stated that the scheme would be formally advertised and he encouraged local residents living along the route to make themselves aware of what was being proposed. Speaking to Newry Times, McGinn said, “What is being proposed is enhanced markings and signage to raise driver awareness of the existing speed limits currently in force. The details will be advertised in the local press on the week commencing the 21st of May. Local communities in St Monnina Park, Bleary Bungalows, the Chancellors Road and up in Highstreet have constantly raised their very genuine concerns about the lack of traffic calming measures along these busy and indeed dangerous stretches of roads. I will continue to support these communities in their endeavours to persuade Roads Service to implement measures which will increase the safety and wellbeing of those living along and using the roads”. Said the Sinn Fein elected representative.

    given the fact that Cllr mcginn lives along this very stretch of road in question, i wonder if he lived on another road elsewhere would it still get the same expedited service….as there are many other roads with even more serious safety concerns, yet his own road appears to be getting priority over them?…………
