DUP/Tory Cuts impacting roads network - Lynch

Published: 26 January, 2018

Sinn Féin MLA for Fermanagh South Tyrone, Seán Lynch, has said DUP/Tory cuts are impacting the roads network, particularly in rural areas.

The Fermanagh South Tyrone MLA said:

"The issue of potholes has been raised with me by a number of people and motorists.

"The ability to maintain our road network as well as gully cleaning and street lighting maintenance have all been affected by Tory cuts to the north's budget.

"The growing number of potholes on our roads and the length of time it is taking for them to be repaired in some instances is clear evidence of that.

"I would encourage anyone whose car has been damaged by potholes to take a picture and report it to the Department for Infrastructure.

"I will be following the matter up with the Department to ensure the required repairs are dealt with as quickly as possible." ENDS/CRÍOCH
