Ulster Unionists Welcome Commitment to Resurfacing Schemes in Carrickfergus

Ulster Unionist Party MLA Roy Beggs has welcomed assurances received by Transport NI that road resurfacing work in Slemish Heights & Shane Heights will be completed in this financial year.

Mr Beggs said “I wrote to Transport NI to advise that I was not happy with the current state of the road network in the Slemish and Shane Heights area of Prospect, following complaints by constituents.  I also asked that the area be considered for resurfacing as part of Transport NI’s scheme of work in the area. I am glad to hear that the area has been included for resurfacing in this financial year in addition to recent work in Collin Heights, Tardree Heights, Prospect Downs and Sandringham. I will also commit to continue pressing for an upgrade of the busy North Road.”

Mr Beggs UUP colleague Cllr Andrew Wilson, who represents Knockagh on Mid & East Antrim Borough Council added “I am also glad to learn that further resurfacing is planned for next year pending sufficient funding which will include the Hillview area.  During a recent presentation by Transport NI at a Council Committee, I was advised in a written response that there are nearly 300 potholes and streetlights in need of repair in the Borough and this scheduled work will go some way to address the problem.”
