Transport Minister Danny Kennedy has congratulated Roads Service’s planned investment totalling £3.7million for maintenance schemes and operations in the Newry and Mourne District Council. Kennedy said: “Last year’s budget for structural maintenance and local transport and safety measures allowed a good range of such schemes to be successfully delivered by Roads Service. Roads Service’s budgets for road maintenance and improvement schemes are greatly reduced this year, in line with the four year budget agreed by the Executive. However, Roads Service is using its available resources effectively and continuing to deliver quality public services.” “Assessment work is continuing on the proposed Newry Southern Relief Road. This will provide a link from the A2 Warrenpoint Road to the main A1 Belfast to Dublin dual carriageway. A feasibility study has recently been completed which will assist in the identification of a preferred corridor for this scheme.” The Minister also welcomed Roads Service’s proposed programme for the year ahead on local transport and safety measures. These include the upgrade of traffic signal controls at Buttercrane Quay / Francis Street / Merchants Quay Junction, Newry and Merchants Quay / Monaghan Street Junction, Newry.
