DUP MP Carla Lockhart has expressed her delight at securing a commitment from the Department for Infrastructure to resurface a significant stretch of Pines Park in Lurgan. 300m of the Park will be resurfaced as part of the Avenue Road resurfacing scheme scheduled for July/August.
Carla Lockhart said:
“It is ten years since I first started to lobby for the resurfacing of Pines Park, so to get this commitment at long last is long overdue.
The road is in a terrible condition and has been for many years. When the commitment was given to resurface Avenue Road I felt it was an opportunity for DfI to address my concerns in Pines Park. I am glad this work will be done for residents.
I know there remains outstanding issues with regards the width of the entrance into the development and the surfacing of Pines Close, Grove and Court. I will continue to press on these issues but am pleased that some progress is being made.”
