‘SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET KILLED ON OUR ROAD AND POLITICIANS HAVE DONE NOTHING ABOUT IT’

first_imgResidents living beside a busy road which has no footpaths or lighting have warned it is only a matter of time before someone is killed on it.The road between Casey and Tullydish in Buncrana runs along six different housing estates with an average of 40 houses on each estate.But residents claim their plight is being completely ignored by local councillors for some reason.The road, which is not wide enough for two vehicles to pass, is uneven and in a bad state of repair. But, as our picture shows, it is used daily by large lorries delivering all sorts of goods.A spokesman for outraged local residents told Donegal Daily “The main problem however, is that there are no footpaths for people or families to walk on.“There are a few corners that are blind so people have to walk on the wrong side of the road to get to and from the town.“As well as this there is also an issue with the speed limit of the road as it is so narrow and uneven,” he said. Every house paid a development charge for the upgrade of this road and the installation of footpaths and street lighting which has not been done.“The only time we hear or see anyone about the road is when our so called local representatives are up looking for our votes! Then we are told that the road is their number one priority and that’s the last we see of them.“While the local governments tar roads that are in way better condition than our road, so they can use up there budgeted road money for this year it makes us wonder where is our car tax money going and why should we even pay it,” added the resident.The spokesman suggested Buncrana town council could use the perfectly good curb stones they have taken off Buncrana’s Main Street and put them up our road to make a footpath for the road.“Something needs to be done sooner rather than later before an adult or child is killed trying to navigate this shambles of a road,” he added. ‘SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET KILLED ON OUR ROAD AND POLITICIANS HAVE DONE NOTHING ABOUT IT’ was last modified: October 10th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:buncranaBuncrana Town Counciloutraged residentsroadTullydishlast_img
