Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Mackle welcomes underpass progress

Published: 6 December, 2017

Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Mackle has welcomed progress on the gating of the Portadown Road underpass.

He said:

"I welcome the community consultation on gating the underpass at the Portadown Road. It is fantastic to see this move to the next stage. The residents of Ashwood, Oakridge and Mansfield have suffered decades of anti-social behaviour at the hands of those who gather at this underpass.

"Gating the underpass in the evenings and weekends will hopefully eradicate this problem.

"I would encourage the community to get behind this consultation and respond to it to ensure a strong case is made in favour of gating this area at evenings and weekends."
