MLA demands action on local road schemes
SINN Féin MLA, Bronwyn McGahan, has questioned why two local road improvement schemes have been subject to continued delays.
Ms McGahan said she had been informed that the work - in the village of Moy and along the Mullaghmore Road in Dungannon - would be carried out in October.
Continuing, the Fermanagh-South Tyrone MLA said: “In order to maximise road safety I wrote to the DRD Roads Service about traffic calming at Mullaghmore Road and new signage for the village of Moy on the junction with the A4 dual carriageway.
“Regarding the signage at Moy I was informed by letter this would happen in conjunction with “a mobile bylane closure for grass cutting on the carriageway scheduled for 1st October to 13th October”.
“I have received complaints from businesses in the Moy area who are concerned they are losing out on business due to the lack of signage at this important junction.
“Regarding Mullaghmore Road, I was told traffic calming scheme would commence on the ground before the end of September.
“However as we enter the month of November these works have still to be started and I will now be demanding that these improvements are carried out immediately.
“I will now be contacting the DRD Roads Service to get answers why this has not happened.”
