Praise for DRD for resolving flooding problem

Alliance Councillor John Blair has thanked Department for Regional Development staff for their “swift action” to solve a roadside flooding issue at the junction of Rose Park and Antrim Road in Glengormley.

“I am grateful that the department acted swiftly to resolve this problem which was causing problems for residents and pedestrians alike. Problems at this site were exacerbated by the fact that water was being sprayed close to residential paths and doorways,” he explained.

“I have written to the Department to thank them for their actions at Rose Park and have asked that they now address similar problems of localised flooding at Burnthill Road close to the junction with Ballyclare Road.”
