Emma Rogan MLA has welcomed work being started on the Sea defence wall in Minerstown by the Department of Infrastructure.
The Sinn Féin MLA for South Down stated;
“These repairs to the Coastal defence wall were vitally needed and I welcome that work has now started
‘Coastal erosion is a serious threat facing the whole of the north and especially the South Down coastline, I am glad to see this important work commencing to tackle this issue’.
“The Minerstown Road has had to be closed while this important work is carried out by the Department of Infrastructure and I would ask people to be mindful of this on their travels’.
