Ards Borough Councillor Joe Boyle, SDLP Strangfpord MLA candidtae has held further meetings with Roads Service officials seeking further improvements to roads in and around the Portaferry area.
Mr Boyle said, “There has been a rapid deterioration in the standard of the road between Kircubbin and Portaferry, the Cloughey Road outside of Portaferry along with the Shore Road in Portaferry which are all in immediate need of urgent repairs.”
“I have also raised the issue of replacing broken kerb stones on the footpath on the Shore Road, repairs to manhole covers in this area that cause disruption late at night with a loud sounding whenever vehicles drive over these covers late at night, gully cleaning in the Square as well as flooding concerns and drainage on the Deerpark Road.
“There was a substantial number of requests presented to the Road Service Officials at the meeting and I now expect these issues to be addressed within the foreseeable future. I would once again place on record my appreciation to Roads Service for agreeing to these requests and for their ongoing commitment to deal with the issues in an effective and efficient manner as and when I present concerns to them,” he added.
