Sinn Féin Councillor Oonagh Magennis has confirmed that Firmus Gas will be back on site along the Camlough Road on Monday 5 August and she has warned motorists using the main Camlough to Newry road to give themselves extra time for their journey.

Speaking to Newry Times, the local Councillor said, “Ongoing works by Firmus along the Camlough Road have caused delays, which whilst expected because of the volume of traffic using the road, none the less causes inconvenience and frustration.”

The Sinn Féin representative continued, “Firmus has confirmed that they will be back on site on Monday 5 August.

“Inconvenience due to traffic lights and the single lane might arise and I would encourage motorists and pedestrians using the stretch of road, to take this into account.

“It is also important to ensure that Firmus staff working on site can do so in safety.



Councillor Magennis continued, “Works are going as to the planned programme and I have been assured that everything is on target to ensure this major scheme will be finished on time.

“I will continue to liaise with Firmus and encourage their operatives to endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.”

The local Sinn Féin Councillor added, “I will meet again with Firmus senior Engineers to track progress and raise any issues that road users and residents may have.”
