Glens councillors pay tribute to Roads Service

COUNCILLORS in the Glens of Antrim have paid tribute to the hard work of Road Service, local farmers and contractors during the recent period of bad weather.

Sinn Fein councillor Colum Thompson, who is also a member of the volunteer rescue group 4x4 Response, said: “Conditions on the roads on higher ground throughout The Glens have been treacherous for a number of days making driving hazardous.

“Road Service have had gritters and snow ploughs servicing the roads almost constantly and it is full credit to them and their staff for doing such an effective job in these conditions. The situation has been difficult for drivers, particularly commuters making the journey too and from work but without the efforts of Road Service things would have been much worse.”
