Sinn Féin - On Your Side

State of Rural Roads in Fermanagh South Tyrone to be discussed at Assembly today.

29 June, 2009

Sinn Féin MP MLA for Fermanagh South Tyrone Michelle Gildernew has raised the issue of road maintenance in rural communities across the constituency.

Speaking prior to today’s debate Ms Gildernew said:-

“Today’s adjournment debate is an important one that highlights this issue of concern for people right across the counties of Fermanagh and Tyrone.

“This is an issue that I have raised with my colleague in the Executive Conor Murphy. I have invited him as Roads Minister to visit my constituency and to see for himself the effects of a falling maintenance budget is having within Fermanagh and Tyrone.

“I look forward to meeting with the Minister on this issue and I hope to press upon him the need to tackle decades of discrimination in funding infrastructural improvements that are badly needed West of the Bann.” ENDS.
