£350,000 road resurfacing scheme set for Belleek

South Armagh Councillor Bara O’Muiri has welcomed the announcement of a major road resurfacing scheme in Belleek.

The Sinn Fein representative said the £350,000 scheme due to begin on the Newtown Road on March 20th between Belleek Village and the Outlacken Road was very welcome but added that there was much more work required in the area.

“We’re delighted to see this much needed and long overdue work finally begin,” he said.

“This is one of the major issues we’ve been hearing about from residents on the doorsteps.  There will be traffic control measures and some local road closures while the work is taking place, which I understand will inconvenience people heading to or from Newtownhamilton or Newry but I’d ask motorists to be patient and bear with it as this will have far greater long term benefits for the area’s infrastructure.

“While we’re delighted to see this work begin this is by no means the end of investment in the area. We have held a number of meetings over the past couple of weeks around concerns we have with other roads around the village.

He added, “In particular I would like to see the Cold Brae Road widened as well as resurfacing work on the Whiterock and Cluster Roads, both of which are in a disgraceful state. I will be continuing to campaign to ensure that all roads in the area are safe and fit for purpose.”
