Cllr Ivor Wallace Calls For Re-examination Of Roundabout

1 Mins read

Following on from the completion of the £55million A26 Frosses Road dualling scheme on 12th June 2017, there has been a large number of accidents and near misses at the Drones Road Roundabout which is at the end of the dualling scheme, and was designed to easy movement of traffic for the 18000 vehicles which daily use the road.

Speaking to causeway Coast Community Cllr Ivor Wallace said “Thankfully, the dualling scheme eliminated a road traffic blackspot within this locality at the Frosses trees, but in so doing, it appears to have created a new one in relation to this roundabout.

Over the festive period, a number of accidents unfortunately occurred at this spot and I am continually hearing from constituents in relation to accidents and near misses at this location.

I, Cllr Ivor Wallace, have therefore been in contact with DFI engineers asking them to re-examine this roundabout, the approach to and exit from it in relation to travelling from Ballymena to Ballymoney, driver awareness of the roundabout and to establish if there are any practical solutions which can be put in place to safeguard drivers using the road.”
