Alex Easton MLA has accused the Department of Infrastructure of betraying the residents of Beechwood Avenue, Beechwood Gardens, and Hawthorne Drive after failure to resurface their roads.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“Under NI Assembly Questions and emails from the Department of Infrastructure they confirmed that Beechwood Avenue, Beechwood Gardens, and Hawthorne Drive in Bangor were on the 2022 road resurfacing programme. As time has moved on the Department of Infrastructure removed Beechwood Avenue, Beechwood Gardens, and Hawthorne Drive from the resurfacing programme without consultation and failed to put Beechwood Avenue, Beechwood Gardens, and Hawthorne Drive down for this year resurfacing program putting other streets that were behind them on the list in front of them. I don’t know who is making these decisions but it is clearly being done in an unfair manor and they need to get Beechwood Avenue, Beechwood Gardens, and Hawthorne Drive back onto this year’s resurfacing list and treat the residents in those areas fairly, as once again the residents of North Down have been treated unfairly by the Department of Infrastructure.”
