DOWNPATRICK Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Johnston has called for the resurfacing of the Ardglass Road in Downpatrick following a number of complaints by road users.
Councillor Johnston said: “Sinn Fein have been approached by numerous people about the condition of the Ardglass Road. After inspecting the road myself it is clear to see that it is in an extremely bad state.
“The road is in poor condition from the roundabout at Struell road and into Ardglass itself. With the new investment by NI Water for treating waste water and the potential to create investment in housing and business, the main road to the village will have to be brought up to a reasonable standard.”
He added: “I feel that the best option would be to resurface the entire road. While I understand that this will cost a large sum of money I feel that this main road should be included in this years capital programme to compensate the work being carried out by NIW.”
