Newry & Armagh Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has asked Roads Service to outline how and where they have prioritised and allocated their Budget within the south Armagh area. The MLA was speaking after she and her Council colleagues, Cllrs Terry Hearty and Barra Ó Muírí had met with Officers from TransportNI to discuss several local issues of concern.
 
"Myself, Terry and Barra met Transport NI Roads Officials and discussed a wide range of concerns. We visited sites of concern so that all present could see exactly what has left our local people extremely concerned, angry and frustrated" said the south Armagh MLA who continued,
 
We pointed out that following recent accidents, there is a requirement for traffic calming measures to be introduced at the junction of Crossmaglen Square and the Culloville Road. Assurances were given that Traffic Control Section would investigate and detail the actions needed to make this junction safer. Also, we visited the Concession Road which Terry as local Councillor has over the years repeatedly highlighted. The road is in a horrendous and I believe dangerous state. We can see no reason as to why Transport NI have failed to invest properly in bringing this road up to a proper and safe standard. There is a perception many local people and elected representatives share, that roads in this area like the Concession Road, are not receiving the attention or investment they are entitled to, and we have asked Transport NI to provide an extensive breakdown of where the Roads Budget for this area is being spent or perhaps not being spent
 

"There are very serious safety issues around St Patrick's Primary school particularly when children finish school. Lack of traffic control and available car parking space cause major chaos and safety concerns. Roads Service have been asked to examine the issues involved and work with the School, PSNI and all other appropriate statutory agencies to address them. Meanwhile we remind motorists and pedestrians to drive carefully within the school area”

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Energy, Environment and Climate Change Cathal Boylan has expressed his concern that work has begun on a controversial turbine near the Knock Iveagh Cairn burial site in County Down.
 
Work began after a 28-day stop notice expired but the Newry Armagh MLA is calling for it to be halted pending a public inquiry.
 
He commented: "I am extremely concerned that work has begun on the controversial wind turbine situated close to the Knock Iveagh Cairn site. There are serious fears that the turbine will have a detrimental impact on the integrity of the historical site.
“The expiration of the 28-day stop notice has allowed construction to begin but Sinn Féin are calling for all work to be suspended until a full public inquiry can be carried out to establish the full impact of the development.
 
“This is needed due to flaws in the 2013 consultation process which did not engage with experts including archaeologists in the Historic Environment Division of the Department of Communities who have since come out in opposition to the plan to erect a mast on the site. Local residents were also not made fully aware of the consultation process at the time.
 

“Sinn Féin supports the expansion of renewable energy production that will allow us to cut our over reliance on fossil fuels and move towards a more-sustainable, low carbon society. However, this cannot be at the expense of important heritage sites which have been protected for thousands of years.”.

Newry City Sinn Féin Councillor Liz Kimmins has stated that the issue of illegal dumping along Watson Road and Brogie's Road needs addressed as a matter of priority.
 
"Illegal dumping plagues many areas of our district but what is happening on an ongoing basis along Watsons Road and Brogie's Road is totally unacceptable. Those engaged in these illegal acts of dumping care nothing for local residents or road users nor indeed the ratepayer who ultimately picks up the bill for removing this litter" 
 
said the local Councillor and she continued,
 

"This area is a "hot spot" for illegal dumping and our Environmental Department need to rigorously tackle the issue. Local people want it stopped and those who are engaged in these illegal acts to face prosecution. There is a need for appropriate overt and covert observation measures at "hot spot" dumping areas such as Watsons Road and Brogie's Road. I will be meeting Council Officers on site to hear their views on how they intend to support those of us who want to tackle this scourge.

Police are aware of the impact that burglaries can have on individual householders. By following some sensible crime prevention measures home owners can help reduce their risks of becoming a victim. 
 
Supt. Paul Reid said, “Reassessing your crime prevention routine is an important first step to beating the burglar. A proportion of all burglaries occur at unsecured premises through unlocked doors or windows. If your doors aren't secure, neither is your house. 
 
“Never leave keys in the locks, on table tops or hooks in view of external windows. Never hide spare keys under doormats or flower pots - thieves aren't stupid - hidden keys make life easy for the burglar. Keep your doors and windows locked and establish a bedtime routine which involves checking them just before you retire for the night.
 
“Whether you have wooden, metal or UPVC window frames in your home there are a variety of locks available that are suitable for all window types. If your window does not already have a keyed lock fitted, then consider having them fitted, particularly on ground floor windows or upper windows that may be easily accessed from a flat roof.
 
“Exterior lights are useful in discouraging the attention of criminals, particularly those involved in burglary and the theft of heating oil as it raises the potential of them being seen in the vicinity of your home by either yourself or a neighbour. 
 

“If you need free crime prevention advice, please call the 101 number and ask to speak to your local Crime Prevention Officer.”
