Assembly backs calls to address unadopted roads -Anderson

Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has welcomed the backing of the Assembly for the need to address unadopted roads across the north. 

Speaking after the motion passed, the Foyle MLA said:

“Almost 3,000 roads outside homes and private developments across the north are unadopted. 

“This has a major impact on people’s lives as they cannot get access to basic services such as gritting and bin collection. 

“The Assembly has today backed a motion calling for action to address the backlog of unadopted roads. 

“The motion also calls for adequate enforcement against private developers who fail to bring roads up to standards.  

“Buying a home is a big deal for families, they deserve to get access to services. This motion must be a first step in finally addressing this issue.”
