ruanecaitSpeaking to Newry Times, Ruane said, “This is a very busy road and the safety of children, their parents and teachers is a priority.

“The beacons are an important visual reminder to drivers that they are approaching a primary school. Along with my colleagues in Sinn Féin I have been campaigning for various road safety measures in Hilltown for a long time and it is very gratifying to see this work now bearing fruit.

“For instance, I am delighted that footpath improvements in the main street have already been completed and that, following my request,the installation of a 30mph roundel on the main Rostrevor to Hilltown Road has been ordered by Transport NI,” she added.
