Sinn Fein has called for action at Kinnego Embankment near Lurgan after a series of serious accidents.

Central SF Cllr Fergal Lennon urged Transport NI to address road safety concerns at Kinnego.

This follows a serious road traffic collision on Thursday afternoon on the road.

Speaking at the site Cllr. Lennon said: “I have contacted Transport NI and have requested that an urgent site visit be carried out to address this issue.

“I have been contacted by both residents and businesses in the area who are extremely concerned about the dangers this stretch of the road poses.

“We have already seen people seriously injured on this stretch of road and sooner or later we will be dealing with a fatality.

“It is time that action is taken and taken urgently to address this serious safety issue.”
