Dickson asks Minister about providing salt boxes for Loughview Village

East Antrim Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson has asked Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy about the possibility of providing salt boxes for Loughview Village in Carrickfergus. He asked the Minister in an Assembly Question.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “I asked the Minister about the possibility of the provision of salt boxes for Loughview Village. I believe that they could be beneficial for people in the area in icy conditions and I wanted to see whether the Minister would be in a position to provide this resource.

“The Minister stated that road layout and gradient, amongst other factors, are taken into account and salt boxes are not provided in streets where the gradient is less that 5%. He said he thought Loughview Village would not meet the criteria for such provision.”
