Cllr Kenneth Flood confirms Greenhills Road repair

Sinn féin Councillor Kenneth Flood has confirmed that the Greenhills Road will be repaired yet again, making this the third repair in just five years.

Cllr Flood said “While I welcome confirmation that these works are to start soon, after much lobbying from myself, I want this resurfacing to last a lot longer than the previous two repairs. Regular users of this stretch of road that leads to Our Lady’s College, Greenhills, will be well used to having to slow to a snail’s pace and manoeuvre around the potholes. I have had to lobby for this particular road to be repaired yet again after shoddy work in the past.”

The section of road included in the Roadworks Programme 2018 at ‘Greenhills’ is on the Newtown Road from its junction with Greenhills Road at Ushers Corner for 440m.

Cllr Flood said “Unfortunately this is not the only area that needs to be redone after such a short period. We don’t see these issues on our Motorways so we should not be seeing them on our local roads.”

Concluding Cllr Flood said, “I will be working closely with my party colleague Deputy Imelda Munster who is our party Spokesperson on Transport to raise the issue of repeat repairs on local roads in the Dail. What has happened up to now is just not sufficient and poor workmanship and temporary repairs are nothing but an economic nonsense.”
