1 Mins read

DUP MLA Maurice Bradley has had an assurance from the Department of Infrastructure that increased funding has been made available to target roads that have been impacted by the severe winter weather.
Bradley was given the information after he expressed concerns to the Department in relation to the deterioration of the road network within his East Londonderry constituency.

In his correspondence with the Department, the DUP man asked for a moratorium on spend on the larger capital projects, so that funding could be directed to roads maintenance.

“I received correspondence from the Department last week and I am pleased that their capital budget has been increased. This funding will allow for a greater number of defects to be repaired.

“I have been told that this extra finance will be set aside for a ‘Roads Recovery Fund’ which will enable local section engineers to target roads which have been impacted by the severe winter weather.
“Any sign of investment in our roads infrastructure has to be welcomed,” said MLA Bradley.

In concluding Bradley welcomed the news that a £220,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme will commence on the Kilrea Road, Upperlands on June 25.
