Councillor Darryl Wilson calls for an urgent review of traffic management in Ballymoney.

Councillor Darryl Wilson has asked the department for infrastructure to review the traffic flow on the Meetinghouse Street / Castle Street areas of Ballymoney.

Cllr Wilson said

“In recent years the traffic volume and congestion on Meetinghouse Street and Castle Street in Ballymoney has increased significantly causing lengthy delays for local people, people passing through the town and commuters using public transport. These delays are now having a detrimental impacting local business and members of the public.

The streets in question (B66) has always been a busy thoroughfare through the town of Ballymoney for commuters, it is also an access and ingres point for local people /town centre traffic, traffic going to and from the train station, and in recent years larger multi national supermarkets.

At present a large multinational supermarket is relocating onto the B66 (Meetinghouse Street) which will no doubt add to the delays and congestion.

I have therefore requested that an urgent review of the traffic management and road network be carried out to encompass the B66 from its Junction with the Finvoy road, including the junction at the foot of Main Street, right through to the roundabout where the road meets the Queen St and the Rodeing Foot (B62) .

Traffic congestion has been raised and is being discussed as part of the upcoming review being carried out regarding a renewed Ballymoney town masterplan, however, it would be more than useful if Dfi would feed into this process with recommendations.
