Management key to roads budget
ONE often hears the comment that, while the property bubble may have been a disaster, at least we got good roads. It is in truth small consolation, but it would be unbearable if the financial crisis lost us the good roads.
The priority must always be safety.
The National Roads Authority boss is undoubtedly right to say that many part of the major road network are unsafe and sub-standard. One of the most infamous, and certainly the most inexplicable, is the remaining stretch of single carriageway on the N11 -- the only such stretch on around 300k of dual carriageway between Antrim town and Gorey.
