Ballyholland Councillor Peter Kearney has addressed the concerns of local residents and motorists alike regarding the poor driving conditions on the Ballyholland Road. Speaking to Newry Times, Kearney said, “Due to recent bouts of frosty weather over the past few weeks the Ballyholland Road had become frozen in parts and as a result, obviously quite dangerous to drive on. “Being a regular user of this road myself I had an excellent opportunity to speak with residents on a face to face basis about their concerns driving on the road. A good number of residents felt it was hazardous and only a matter of time before there was an accident.” The Sinn Fein representative went on to say, “I contacted the DRD Roads Service on behalf of the local community, and indeed others who quite often use the road, to increase the intervals at which the road is gritted.” Councillor Kearney added, “Also the Betty’s Hill Road area of Ballyholland was an issue raised with the Roads Service. Heavy rain as of late was a hindrance to motorists and steps are being taken to improve the condition of the road in further instances of this nature.”
