Newry Sinn Féin councillor Brendan Curran has called for immediate action to address the daily log jam that occurs at the top of the Camlough Road roundabout before there is a serious accident. Curran pointed out that the road markings that are currently employed are what he described as ‘totally inadequate and confusing’. Speaking about the issue to Newry Times, Curran said that after spending some time monitoring the traffic, especially at peak times, he realised there was a major problem. Motorists have to negotiate three lanes when heading in the direction of Camlough. “Although there are abbreviated signs painted on the road, I would argue that this is not acceptable and indeed this has the potential to distract drivers who are not familiar with the road layout.” Curran continued, “I am calling on Roads Service to address this issue as a matter of urgency and put in place proper, easy to read signs that drivers can see well before the junction is upon them. I suggest that large signs are erected directly above the lanes which run under the new flyover bridge. “By doing this drivers will have a clear line of vision and can decide well beforehand which lane they need to be in. Mickey Brady and I have visited the area on a number of occasions and Mickey has agreed to write to the minister to bring this issue onto the table for immediate action.”
