Trevor Lunn MLA said: “It’s good to see that these are in the forward planning schedule and have not been discarded due to recent cuts. I would like to see the motorway connection scheme going ahead in a timely fashion. Lisburn and the surrounding areas really needs a project like this to help ease traffic problems.
“There are also a wide range of other roadworks planned by Roads Service for the future, like signal junction provision in Moira’s Main Street, a pelican crossing and footway link at the Pond Park Road and resurfacing at Mercer Street/Hillhall Road, Wardsborough Road and Graham Gardens.
“It is important that we see these vital works going ahead so that a good quality service is provided, and progress on them will also help ensure more employment in the already hard-hit construction sector.”
