Alex Easton MLA has today accused the Infrastructure Minister of yet again failing the people of North Down.
Speaking today Alex Easton MLKA said:
“It is my job to hold Ministers to account and ensure my constituents get the best possible services I can lobby for them across North Down. Sadly the current Infrastructure has shown a complete lack of interest in North Down and so the list of failings goes on. Not one school across North Down has been included in the 20MPH scheme to reduce the speed of the traffic. The Minister has rejected calls to visit North Down. There is a complete failure by the Minister to address the mess caused works by telecommunications companies to footpaths across Bangor. A failure to tackle the dozens and dozens of roads and footpaths that need badly resurfaced from Holywood, Bangor, Donaghadee and Millisle all of which are on a road reserve resurfacing list. A failure to address the fact that the Ards and North Down Council area gets the least amount of funding per head of population spent on our roads infrastructure. The question is why is this happening under the infrastructure ministers watch, why is she demonstrating a lack of interest in North Down and when will she take action to address the inequalities that are clearly happening, if the Infrastructure minister cant show an equal playing field then she simply needs to go.”
