Roads Service refusal to fix Main Street footpath Rasharkin ‘unacceptable’

Sinn Féin Councillor Leanne Peacock has said that Roads Services’ continual refusal to fix the footpath on Main Street in Rasharkin is ‘not acceptable’.

Cllr Peacock said, “ I have contacted Roads Service many, many times over the past months about loose paving stones on the footpath along Main Street Rasharkin which are causing a tripping hazard for local people and time and again I am met with refusal from them to take action.

“Many local people have tripped on these loose stones and some have fallen as a result. It is not good enough and has been ongoing for a long time at this point. This is one of the most densely frequented pavements in the village and yet it is being left as a health and safety hazard for our local people.

“I have written again to Roads Service this week requesting urgent action to fix the loose stones, which is a very small request from the people of Rasharkin, and I will continue to lobby heavily until we see the issue finally addressed.”
