It was a case of the proverbial bitter-sweet moment following the resurfacing of a road in Craigavon.
Despite the completion of much-needed work the Tullygally East Road, which runs past Carrigart, Meadowbrook and Drumbeg, there is a feeling the work is scant consolation for what has been long campaigned for.
“This investment in the local infrastructure is most welcome even with the disruption caused over a number of days to local people and commuters,” said councillor Fergal Lennon.
“However, it is disappointing that the opportunity was not taken at this time to install a roundabout at the junction of the Tullygally East Road, Old Portadown road and the entrance to the Meadowbrook estate.
“Local residents and I have been lobbying for improved road safety measures at this junction for a considerable time and while we are disappointed, we are not defeated and we will continue to lobby for such work until we are successful.”
