‘Positive response’ to Bleary Bungalows road concerns

Sinn Féin Councillor Liz Kimmins has welcomed what she has described as a positive response by the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) regarding speed concerns on the road adjacent to Bleary Bungalows at Corrinshego.

Speaking to Newry Times, the local Councillor explained, “Recently I and local residents from Bleary Bungalows met with the Department for Infrastructure Road Service Officers regarding long-standing speeding concerns on the road.

“Residents have repeatedly raised these issues as the volume and speed of traffic along the road has increased over the last number of years and it has become extremely dangerous for pedestrians and people living on this stretch of road.”



The Sinn Féin representative continued, “The Department for Infrastructure has responded positively and has agreed to install 30mph signage, SLOW signs, and red surfacing to raise awareness for drivers to adhere to the speed limit and reduce their speed.

“This will be a further extension of the planned reduction of the speed limit along the Chancellors Road at Cloughogue Primary School, something I  have been lobbying for ever since coming onto council in 2014.”



Councillor Kimmins added, “This is good news for the people of the area and DFI hopes to have the works completed by the end of the financial year.”
