McDonald pushes for road improvements

Sinn Féin councillor Packie McDonald has told Newry Times he continues to push for improvements on the B133 road which runs from Newry to Forkhill, as Roads Service have received an additional £900,000 to spend in the Newry and Mourne area.

Councillor McDonald said, “I have been inundated with calls from road users on the Newry to Forkhill B133 road in relation to its bad condition. This road has a great deal of traffic travelling on it and sections of the road would need urgent improvement.

“I have been in contact with Roads Service on a number of occasions requesting for this roads condition to be addressed. They have confirmed that they are going to carry out work on an 850 metres section outside Meigh village and 1,200 metres section from Cloghoge roundabout. This will address the worst parts of the road.

He added, “Their work should hopefully be carried out early in the New Year. It is long overdue and was promised before but the funding was withdrawn. I have been assured that approximately £300,000 of their funding will be spent to improve this road and I look forward to the work being carried out efficiently.”
