Newry, Mourne and Down Sinn Féin Councillor Liz Kimmins has said that the current condition of the road surface along 4th Street in Barcroft is in dire need of resurfacing.

Speaking to Newry Times, the local Councillor said, “Following representations from myself and the local community Transport NI have completed the repair of one pothole at the entrance to the street.



“However the entire stretch of road surface is clearly in disrepair and not fit for purpose.

“Local Residents, pedestrians and motorists should not have to accept this standard of road. I would share the safety concerns of many about its condition.”

The Sinn Féin elected representative continued, “I have been lobbying Transport NI over the last number of months regarding the current state of the road surface in the 4th Street, Barcroft Park.



“This has been in great need of repair for a long time, as it has been constantly patched up over the years.

“The road is littered with potholes and uneven surfaces and local residents have difficulties avoiding these when trying to access their homes.

“It is now in desperate need of resurfacing. I will continue to push Transport NI to resurface this stretch of road as a matter of urgency,” she added.
