A second road traffic accident has occurred this afternoon on the junction of the Gracehill and Bregagh Road, Armoy.
This follows on from a fatal at the same junction on Tuesday evening. Police and NIAS were in attendance. Local residents are alarmed at the rising number of accidents on the Gracehill Road close the iconic Dark Hedges.
UUP Councillor Joan Baird said ” I contacted the Road Service on the 8th September about the ongoing problems at these junctions. I was out and met residents at the Fivey Road Junction where the Air Ambulance had been a few days earlier and where the signage is rendered invisible by trees. It is a tragedy for the people concerned.
Residents have alerted the Road Service and Police for some months to the dangers at these junctions by yet nothing has been done When is some action going to be taken?”
