McGlone: Urgent Action Needed to Repair ‘Roller Coaster’ Desertmartin Road

SDLP MLA for Mid Ulster, Patsy McGlone, has called on Transport NI to take urgent action to repair the Desertmartin/Roshure Road near Mossbawn Estate on the edge of Magherafelt town.

Mr McGlone said, “A number of constituents have contacted my office with their concerns about the state of disrepair of the Desertmartin/Roshure Road near Mossbawn Estate in Magherafelt.

“The road has begun to sink badly and now resembles a roller coaster for anyone driving along it.

“I have written to Transport NI to highlight the concerns of my constituents and to call for urgent action to address the increasingly dangerous condition of this stretch of road.”

Local SDLP Councillor Christine McFlynn added, “People living in the area are concerned about the safety of pedestrians and other road users if the condition of the road is allowed to deteriorate further.

“Transport NI need to move quickly to make an assessment of the problem and take the necessary steps to resolve it.”

Mr McGlone ended, “We will continue to press Transport NI for prompt action on the maintenance of all our rural roads and improve safety for all road users.”
