Castle Lane chaos

TRAFFIC chaos returned to Lurgan as Road Service closed off Castle Lane on Wednesday morning.

President of Lurgan Chamber of Commerce Charlie Gardiner described the sudden move as having a ‘devastating’ effect on the town, closing off access to the main car park and shopping area.

There was anger there was no consultation and a demand that the work be carried out of hours.

The closure had a major knock-on effect throughout the town but particularly on the already busy North Street and Windsor Avenue.

“It is having a serious effect on the businesses in the town, the local residents and park users,” said Mr Gardiner.
