Delays to Road Works 'massive blow' for impacted council areas – Newry MLA - Newry Times - newry newspaper


The Newry and Armagh MLA stated, “The fact that road resurfacing in the four council areas of Newry Mourne and Down, Mid Ulster; Derry and Strabane; and Omagh is being delayed.



“This is due to a legal challenge and will come as a huge disappointment for the people living in these areas. 

“Affected asphalt resurfacing works that have been impacted are now expected to commence early in 2022. 



“Our road network is already a shambles.

“And its worsening condition negatively impacts on people and communities on an everyday basis,” she insisted.



“Now much-needed investment into our road network has been delayed.

“This week I expressed to the Infrastructure Minister my complete frustration over this development.

“And I called for this obstacle to be addressed as a matter of urgency.



“Our road network is in serious need of investment.

“And I will continue to call for resurfacing works to continue ASAP,” the Newry MLA adds.
