Ó Muirí Welcomes Resurfacing Commitments for Newtown

Sinn Féin councillor Barra Ó Muirí has welcomed a commitment to start long overdue repair works to a number of roads in Newtownhamilton.

The Slieve Gullion councillor said:

“After much lobbying we’re delighted that DFI have now committed to begin works on the Newry road and the Dundalk road in the new year.

“They are also monitoring the erosion on the Armagh road and are aiming to carry out repair works here in the new financial year, on the basis of funding being allocated.

“These roads and others out of Newtown have been in an extremely poor condition for many years and this was only worsened by the contracts issue which prevented any major works being carried out for a significant period of time.

“Thankfully these issues have been resolved and I welcome the commitment from DFI to address these issues.

“People deserve to have roads that are safe and fit for purpose and Sinn Féin will continue to work to deliver improved road safety for workers and families across South Armagh.
