SDLP East Antrim Westminster candidate Cllr Margaret Anne McKillop has written to Transport NI to thank their employees and local contractors who played a vital role in keeping the roads in the Glens passible where possible.

She said: “The recent snow storms greatly affected the Glens and if not for the sterling work of the employees of Transport NI and local contractors everything would have frozen to a standstill.

“On behalf of my constituents I informed Transport NI of the deep appreciation they have for those who were outside during the worst of the storms at considerable risk to themselves to ensure that essential traffic continued to move.

“We often take the services of Transport NI (Roads Service) for granted and indeed often complain when they don’t match our expectations.  However in recent days there has been nothing but praise for the work they did gritting and clearing snow off the roads to allow essential and emergency services to operate.
