The new layout at the Ballycastle Road Roundabout which was expected to alleviate problems at the Grassmere Junction is clearly not working, according to MLA Maurice Bradley.
Speaking to Causeway Coast Community Bradley said ‘During road improvements off the Ballycastle Road Roundabout towards Grassmere Junction, representatives of Grassmere residents and I met with the DfI in my office to voice concerns.
We were asked to give the new road layout a six-month bedding in period – however, that is clearly not working, and I will be setting up another meeting as soon as possible.
One of the items discussed during that meeting was a left turn only exit from Grassmere. I am looking for a guide on this going into any meeting as to whether this would be acceptable or not.
Send me an e-mail to [email protected] or PM me on Facebook. Alternatively, text or call me on 07833207015 or at the office 02870356990.
In my opinion, the traffic situation has not improved, it is still difficult to exit Grassmere safely and a solution must be found, concluded Bradley.’
