Assembly backs calls to address unadopted roads - Boylan
Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed the backing of the Assembly for the need to address unadopted roads across the north.
Speaking after the motion passed, the Newry/Armagh MLA said:
“Almost 3,000 roads outside homes and private developments across the north are unadopted.
“This has a major impact on people’s lives as they cannot get access to basic services such as gritting and bin collection.
“The Assembly has today backed a motion calling for action to address the backlog of unadopted roads.
“The motion also calls for adequate enforcement against private developers who fail to bring roads up to standards.
“Buying a home is a big deal for families, they deserve to get access to services. This motion must be a first step in finally addressing this issue.”
