“This investment is long overdue and will improve the links across South Antrim,” said Mr Ford.
“I hope it will increase road safety throughout the constituency and beyond. Road accidents ruin lives and wreck families, and we need to tackle this devastating issue.
“In addition, it is also important the Minister has a costed strategic plan to maintain our roads, particularly in rural areas. This would stop the need for costly repairs down the line, meaning money could be spent on further improvement projects for local people instead.”
