Voters in Lurgan will be unaffected by road works after Transport NI said they will halt operation on Victoria Street on May 5.
Sinn Féin Cllr. Keith Haughian has welcomed the decision not to close the road.
He said common sense prevailed and that “people’s journeys to and from polling stations to claim their vote will not be affected”.
“I’m glad that Transport NI have shown common sense and assured me that any road closure or works will not continue in to May 5,” added cllr. Haughian.
“This means that there will not be a hindrance to people travelling to polling stations, nor should there be any of the previously expected traffic congestions as a direct result of the road closure.
“It is important that all public agencies realise their responsibility not to encroach on people’s franchise. I am glad that in this instance Transport NI acted swiftly to resolve the issue.”
