Alderman McDonald welcomes resurfacing of Nursery Road at Gracehill

A councillor has welcomed the resurfacing of a road at Gracehill.

Alderman Stewart McDonald (TUV) said, in a statement to ‘Ballymena Daily’: “I welcome the fact that after years of lobbying on the issue Nursery Road in Gracehill has finally been resurfaced.

“Surface dressing is an extremely cost effective way of maintaining a road. It restores skidding resistance and seals the road surface to prevent water ingress.

“Hot bitumen is sprayed onto the road and chippings are then applied and rolled in. The road is then swept to remove excessive chippings.

“It is just a shame that it took so long for the issue to be addressed. People in the area faithfully pay road tax and are therefore entitled to expect issues such as this to be addressed – and be addressed a great deal more promptly than the Nursery Road situation was.

“I will continue to keep the pressure on statutory agencies to ensure they deliver the service to which the people of Bannside are entitled”.
