Grit delivered to residents in Grangemore to keep the roads open

Grangemore Grit
Bags of grit/salt have been delivered to the Grangemore area of Derry to keep the estate's roads passable. Many residents were forced to leave their vehicles at home following last night's snowball. Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell said: “I was contacted by residents with concerns about snow and ice at this busy junction .It sees hundreds of cars pass through it between the Grangemore and Ardgrange developments each day. “I have been lobbying the Roads Service for a salt box at this junction but so far my requests have been unsuccessful so in the absence of that it was important to the get the bags of salt up to residents so they can grit this junction. Concluding he said: “It’s also important to commend the work of Road Service staff who have been working flat out to keep as many roads in our city and district open."
