A councillor has slammed a ten year wait on the installation of a footpath at the junction of Leyland Road and Market Street in Ballycastle. Councillor Padraig McShane was speaking after a serious RTC involving two cars at the mini roundabout on the busy intersection.

Transport NI have continued to put off the need for a footpath insisting that landowners and property developers have the responsibility. Following the construction of a further forty plus houses above the accident black spot the Councillor McShane has insisted it is ‘ beyond time when Transport NI should act.

“Hundreds of pedestrians are forced onto the busy road to make their way down the final forty meters of Leyland Road to reach the local grocery store. If there is a more pressing need for safety measures for pedestrians on the North Coast, I’ve yet to come across it.

“Transport NI must desist from obfuscation on this issue and make clear when they will install a footpath.”
