McKillop thanks DRD for tactile paving installation

22 05 2014


Glens SDLP Councillor Margaret Anne McKillop would like to thank DRD Roads Service for installing tactile paving in certain areas in Cushendall.
This paving was installed after a local resident who is blind and uses a guide dog got in contact with Cllr McKillop explaining her problems getting about in the town.
Before the paving was installed the resident often found herself in the middle of the road as there was no indication of the foot path ending.
Cllr McKillop said “Hopefully this will solve the problems and help make her life a lot easier, allowing her to continue to be as independent as possible.”

“I would also like to call on Roads Service to have a site meeting regards Glendun Road, a number of residents have been in contact with me about safety issues on the road – wanting it resurfaced as it is in very bad state, as well as the possibility of it being widened. I look forward to hearing from Road Service with regards this issue as soon as possible.”
