McLaughlin welcomes safety measures at Galdanagh Road Junction

1 Mins read

Local Sinn Féin Councillor Cathal McLaughlin has welcomed new road safety measures which will be placed at the Galdanagh Road/ Tullaghans Road Junction.

Mr McLaughlin said, ” I have been contacted by many residents concerned about the safety of the Galdanagh Road/ Tullaghans Road Junction which has been a dangerous spot for road users for many years. Sight lines at the junction are non-existent and vehicles exiting the Galdanagh Road onto the Tullaghans Road are exiting on to a fast stretch of Road close to hill where it is almost impossible to see if there are oncoming vehicles.”

“I contacted Transport NI to relay these concerns and request that measures be put in place to improve the safety of this junction. I have since been informed that this junction is on the minor works programme to have sight lines improved but due to current budgetary constraints it is unknown when this work will take place.”

“However, in the meantime I have received assurances that measures will be put in place to improve the safety at the junction with warning signs being put in place to alert road users on the Tullaghans Road to the junction ahead and indeed warning signs stating ‘slow’ will also be painted on the road. I welcome this action by Transport NI but will continue to lobby for the minor works scheme at this location to be completed as soon as funding becomes available.”
