South Antrim MLA Trevor Clarke has praised Roads Service for a “truly commendable performance” in completing a new footway at Edenduff Cottages outside Antrim.
Mr Clarke said that local residents had been pleased to hear that the provision of a new footway was placed on a list of schemes to be carried out by 2014.
“However I want to commend Roads Service for their hard work and I, along with the residents are overwhelmed that this work was delivered before the advised time,” Mr Clarke said.
Mr Clarke said that parents and residents were concerned about the safety of school children, who had to cross the road several times a day.
“The residents are extremely happy with the work carried out and therefore I want the department to know how much they are appreciated for their hard work.”
