Ulster Unionist Party MLA for East Antrim, Roy Beggs Jr. has commented on land subsidence on the Altarichard Road, between Magherahoney and Cushendall/Cushendun over Slieveanorra (known locally as Orra) Mountain, after over 100 Tonnes of material was washed down from the adjacent hillside.

Roy Beggs MLA said “I am pleased that Road Service have engaged with contractors to survey the suite. I hope that the road structure and culverts remain intact and that it is possible to open the road as soon as possible again for local farmers and residents.

“I have written to the Rivers Agency to that they look at the drainage in the area in order to minimise the risk of reoccurrence in the future.”
