Clarke told Newry Times, “I welcome the long awaited resurfacing schedule of works on the Shımna Road, Newcastle and resurfacing scheme also on Park Avenue, Newcastle due to commence on Monday 13 January 2014.

“The resurfacing of a 700 metre stretch of the Shımna Road from the Causeway Road junction to Bryansford Avenue junction is expected to take eight weeks to complete. Work on the resurfacing of the adjoining Park Avenue will also take place during this period.

“The significant financial investment in both resurfacing schemes especially on the Shımna Road from the Causeway Road junction to the Bryansford Junction will make a major improvement to the roads surface of the Shimna Road which is a very busy main road leading out of Newcastle.

Clarke added, “Both schemes I have no doubt once resurfacing works are completed along the Shimna Road and Park Avenue road users will benefit and see the long term benefits of the new road surfaces.”
