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.
