Road schemes 'will benefit commuters'

WINTRY conditions have demonstrated how underfunding has impacted on the roads, according to a top Government official.

Divisional Roads Manager, David Porter was speaking as he updated Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council members on programmed works on the road network by the Department for Infrastructure at a full monthly meeting last week.

He said: “As the result of the significantly increased capital allocation we have been able to deliver an enhanced level of resurfacing across the Division.

“The completed resurfacing schemes include those at Oldstone Road, Doagh Road, Templepatrick Road at Templepatrick and A6 Antrim Road at Glengormley.

“These schemes will realise significant benefits for both the local community and commuters in the Antrim and Newtownabbey area.”
