Rostrevor Sinn Féin representative Mark Gibbons has called on the Roads Service to take immediate action concerning the appalling state of the Drumreagh and Green Park roads in the village. Speaking to Newry Times, Gibbons said Sinn Féin had been approached by several residents in the area who voiced their concerns over the state of these roads. “I have counted approximately 20 individual potholes on the roads in question, and the rapidly deteriorating state of these roads has got so bad that you simply can’t see the road for the potholes. “I understand that the Roads Service has been very busy in the area and have responded quickly when Sinn Féin have made representations in the past. “But the situation on the Drumreagh and Green Park roads has come to a tipping point, and I call for the Roads Service to take urgent action before there is a major accident. Gibbons added, “Although the filling in of these potholes would be progress, I feel it would simply be a short term fix to the issue. Necessary funding needs to be made available by Roads Service to resurface these roads as a long term solution to the ongoing problem.” Residents in the Rostrevor area who have issues with the condition of roads should contact the Road Service office directly on 028 302 53333.
