Sinn Féin Welcome £230k Road Improvements for Ballynahinch

November 7, 2018

The scheme which will see a 450 metre stretch of the A24 Belfast Road re-surfaced will begin on Friday October 25th with work expected to be completed by Monday November 4th.

Mr Hazzard Commented:

“I very much welcome this investment by Roads Service. I have campaigned for some time now to have the infrastructure around Ballynahinch improved and brought up to a similar standard as other towns in the north of a similar size. I am confident that the improvements will offer long term benefits both for road users and the town’s economic development.

“Local people will also welcome the news but I will be reminding Roads Service that a by-pass scheme for Ballynahinch must remain a priority for them moving into the future. Ballynahinch can-not continue to suffer from the sever traffic problems associated with the town, which I fear have stalled economic development for both Ballynahinch and the wider Down district.

“The stretch of A24 road to be re-surfaced includes from the A24 Belfast Road junction to the Redburn Heights junction, just past Assumption Grammar. I am pleased to learn that Roads Service will carry out the bulk of their work during weekends and at night, which will undoubtedly assist with easing disruption to people’s routines and journeys.”
