Councillors said they would contact the divisional roads manager again in relation to both roads.

Bomb blast rocks
IN September 1971, four explosions rocked the Lisburn area in just four days.
An explosion was caused by several bombs at the Colin Glen bacon factory in Dunmurry, which caused extensive damage to the refrigeration plant, the boiler house and an electricity transformer supplying power to the premises.
Following the explosion, the firm, which employed 350 staff, was forced to reduce its workforce to a skeleton staff.
On a Saturday a triple explosion in the Dunmurry area caused thousands of pounds worth or damage to the headquarters of two big industrial concerns.
The head office of Ready-Mix-Concrete was also wrecked in an explosion, as was Limmer and Trinidad Co Ltd.'s Trinidad House.
The following Monday fire swept through Barbour Threads and on the Tuesday Dunmurry Presbyterian Church's Trinity Hall was wrecked by an explosion.
On Wednesday night police sealed off Bow Street in Lisburn and diverted traffic while a search was carried out. However, nothing was found.
A further bomb hoax was reported at Barbour Threads on the Thursday morning.
