The Kilycolpy Road in Ardboe, which was recently branded a ‘disaster waiting to happen’ by local Sinn Féin Councillor Ronan McGinley, again is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
Among a number of defaults on the road, a very large pothole has appeared causing local residents serious concerns.
Cllr McGinley said “this pot hole has the potential to put someone off the road. I can’t say it any clearer than that. There have been many reports from residents describing how motorists are swerving out in front of each other to miss it, how there has been numerous incidents of damage to vehicles, and people are fearful of it causing a serious accident”.
Cllr McGinley continued ” I’m aware that Transport NI are under budget constraints which is resulting in the delay of repair work for many areas. I know there has to be prioritisation of work, and I understand this is a difficult process. But one look at this Pothole would highlight the need for immediate action. I hope Transport NI can do something to fix this before a serious accident occurs.”
