Muir welcomes Holywood resurfacing commitment

I welcome commitment from Transport NI to resurface Holywood High Street but am disappointed at delay taken and limited scope of the works.

Nearly one year after the new Public Realm works were officially signed off involving new pavements, benches and associated street furniture the commitment by Transport NI to finish the job and resurface Holywood High Street by end of March 2017 is welcome but long overdue.

In response to my most recent enquiry as to when the resurfacing would take place I was advised ‘The resurfacing of High Street, Holywood from the Maypole to Downshire Road is a priority scheme and has been included in this year’s programme’

With remaining roads around Holywood Town Centre also in dire state I have therefore submitted a further enquiry concerning when other associated roads will be resurfaced and hope plans will be put in place to finish the wider job as soon as possible.
