Bradley Raises Drumcroon Safety Concerns With Department

1 Mins read

DUP MLA Maurice Bradley says he has real concerns about the speed of drivers on the Drumcroon Road between Coleraine and Garvagh.

Bradley has been contacted by several constituents who claim that they have had ‘near misses’ on the road, with drivers continually carrying out dangerous overtaking manoeuvres and travelling at high speeds.
In a letter to the Department of Infrastructure, Bradley pressed the need for a reduction in the speed limit on the road. He also highlighted the need for additional signage on the rural stretch indicating the presence of farm machinery.
“I received a response from the Department this week who advise me that according to their site assessment, road markings and signage was correct for the Drumcroon Road.

“Whilst I can understand that the road is subject to the national speed limit, I do feel that additional signage to remind drivers of their speed would be beneficial.

“In light of this, I have made a referral to the Causeway PCSP to have one of their speed detection (SID) units placed on the road.

“These devices indicate the speed of a vehicle, and act as a reminder of how easy it is to go over the speed limit. The data collected by the device can then be used by the PSNI.”

MLA Bradley added: “I thank the Department for their response. I have been assured that the current signage on the Drumcroon Road will be cleaned and any signage that is partly covered by vegetation will be cleared so that it is not obscured for drivers. I hope that these small amendments will help reiterate the road safety message,” said Bradley.
