Sinn Féin Councillor Cathal King has welcomed the commencement of roadworks by DFI on the Clontigora road.
The Councillor for Newry DEA and Fathom said:
“The initial works carried out by DFI this week are a step in the right direction.
“I had reported the road to DFI for repair last week and it’s good to see such a prompt response.
“So far they have resurfaced part of the road which had begun to subside, much to the concern of local residents and motorists.
“There is still more work to be done and I will continue to press DFI to ensure that our roads are kept in a safe condition for local residents and all who travel on them.
“Improving infrastructure for our communities is a priority for Sinn Féin and we will continue to work to Improve the safety and quality of our roads for all.
