Sinn Féin councillor Mickey Larkin has welcomed the rapid repairs carried out to major defects on the Foughilletra and Station roads in Jonesborough
The Slieve Gullion councillor said:
“Earlier this week, I met with DFI to highlight serious road defects on these roads and ask that they be made a priority for repair.
“The engineer on site was shocked and the damage and agreed with me that in the current conditions, these posed a very real and serious danger for those driving on the roads.
“I’m delighted that these major defects on the road have been repaired so soon after my meeting with DFI.
“This will come as a great relief to local residents and all who use the road as we continue to face challenging driving conditions.
“I would like to thank DFI for responding so promptly to the concerns we raised and for carrying out these works as soon as they did.”
