Sinn Féin call for urgent Glenravel works after recent road tragedy

1 Mins read
Sinn Féin are to hold an urgent meeting with the local Head of Transport NI after last week’s fatal accident near Glenravel.
 
Cllr Paul Maguire said
 
“As recently as last month I raised the need for barriers at this part of the road out of Cargan with Transport NI.  
 
“This is not a lot to ask for. We need to act now to prevent further serious accidents or fatalities in the Glenravel area.”
 
Local MLA Daithí McKay added
 
“A number of years ago we secured significant road safety improvements on the road between Cargan and Martinstown. These were long long overdue.
 
“Measures at this part of the road to the Glens is also overdue.
 
“I have requested a meeting with Deirdre Mackel the Head of Transport NI here to get this work prioritised.
 
“It is not good enough that this work has not been prioritised up until now. Cllr Paul Maguire has managed to get this road safety proposal onto the list of proposed projects but we now need to see this proposal moving to the top of the list. 
 
“That is our message for Transport NI and I will also be taking the same message to the new DRD Minister whenever he/she is appointed.
