road worksSpeaking to Newry Times, Rogers said, “3 years ago, I met with the then Roads Service, now Transport NI, and raised my very real road safety concerns in relation to the growing need for a footpath to connect the Killowen Outdoor Centre with Rostrevor.

“This issue has remained on my radar since and I continued to press Senior Officials. I am now delighted to see these works begin on site.

The current scheme will include the construction of 170m long footway which will connect the Outdoor Centre to the existing footpath which leads to Rostrevor.

These works will cost in the region of £40k.
