Speaking to Newry Times, the Sinn Féin representative said, “Despite having highlighted the severity of potholes on the Carrickananny road with TransportNI, no action to address the concerns has taken place.



“This is extremely disappointing. I spoke to local residents recently and visited the stretch of road and I was appalled to find blocked gullies, flooding and a huge pothole measuring 8inches in depth.”

Councillor Mulgrew continued, “This is totally unacceptable, motorists and pedestrians are at risk of serious injuries.



“Roads Service have a duty of care to ensure that this road surface is maintained at a safe and acceptable level.”

The local Councillor added, “I have contacted TransportNI and requested a meeting to discuss this issue and other concerns in relation to roads in that general area.”
