SDLP Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon announced that the £200,000 upgrading work had been completed last Monday.



Upgrades have been carried out on traffic signals at the Trevor Hill/Sugar Island Road/Kildare Street /Upper Water Street junction to aid road safety and traffic progression.

The work also included upgrading the existing controlled pedestrian crossing on Kildare Street to a puffin crossing and also resurfacing of the junction.

Newry and Armagh MLA Mr McNulty says, “These traffic signal upgrades in the heart of Newry will be warmly welcomed by everyone who lives in this area and regularly travels through it.

“This £200,000 investment by SDLP Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon will make our roads safer for motorists and pedestrians alike, reducing the risk of injury and worse.



“This upgrade will also help deal with the chronic traffic congestion experienced in our city centre.

“And this is one of a number of measures announced by the Minister to tackle this persistent problem.

“I’d like to thank SDLP Minister Mallon for delivering this important project on behalf of our community.”

The Newry MLA adds, “While others are preoccupied with their own self-interests, the SDLP continues to put people first and focus on the issues that matter to them.”
