On the 23rd May 2018 Karl Heaney was killed in a RTC along the A1 dual carriageway between Banbridge and Dromore. Karl was a beloved son, brother, boyfriend and uncle. But more than that he was innocent. Actions of certain individuals led to Karl's death that night but upon researching the road we discovered plans to upgrade the A1 have been developed but not implemented. These plans first began to form in 2007. The proposed development was published in 2011 with 8 stages with the 7th stage being the beginning of construction. We are coming to the end of 2018 now and these plans are still only at stage 3. This is not good enough. This road is one of the most dangerous roads in Northern Ireland. It is the main road between Newry and Belfast and is the link road between Belfast and Dublin. Therefore we believe it should be top priority. People like Karl deserve better from their Department of Infrastructure, from their government. If these developments had of been implemented it would have prevented Karl's crash and many like it. We urge you to like and share this page amongst your friends. To share your stories of this road and it's dangers. Let's show the Department of Infrastructure and Stormont that we want answers and results now not in another 10 years time! The time to act is now. How many must die for them to listen to us?!!
