Councillor welcomes road schemes at Culloville and Crossmaglen

Slieve Gullion Councillor Terry Hearty has welcomed confirmation of two long awaited roads schemes in the area. The footpath at Culloville is to be extended, linking Culloville with Clonalig Primary School and a right turning lane will be constructed on the Newry Road junction with the Creamery Road.

“Both of these schemes”, councillor Hearty said, “Were confirmed as part of the Roads Service annual report to Newry & Mourne Council. I have long lobbied for both projects so I am delighted that they have been included in what is otherwise a pretty bleak annual report. With regards to the Culloville project a detaled design of the scheme has been produced and landowners in the area have been contacted with a view to acquiring any necessary lands.”

He continued, “The scheme has been revised to minimise any impact on existing road fronting properties. The Newry Road scheme is something which people have been lobbying me for over the past number of years. It is particularly welcome due to the increased road traffic turning in to the Creamery Road to the Glencarron Nursing Home. The scheme will involve the provision of a right turning lane and carriageway realignment at the junction.”

The Sinn Féin representative continued to give a time-frame for the commencement of these projects. He added, “Roads Service have stated that they aim to start work on both sites in the 2013 – 2014 financial year. I will be getting regular progress reports to ensure that this timeframe is adhered to and that these projects are completed as soon as possible.”
