    Poor people of Cochrane. It is not today that they have made noises about the deplorable state of the public access road to their village. Attention has been drawn to this state of affairs many times , over many years.The alternative connection via Antrim is not without its own hazards. I suspect a general election is on the cards and the local parliamentary representative is not sure of re-election, hence the much needed repairs now. Long term I see our inland settlements being depleted for lack of maintaining a safe and efficient road network and thus causing a devaluation and reduction of dwellings in such areas. That in turn will increase pressure on the coastal zones, which are vulnerable as a result of climate change, making the attainment of climate resilience that much harder.
