The Department Of Infrastructure has made a Statutory Rule entitled The Waiting Restrictions (Ballintoy) Order (Northern Ireland) 2018, (S.R. 2018 No. 11), which comes into operation on 5 February 2018.

The rule will prohibit vehicles waiting at any time on a length of Knocksoghey Lane, Ballintoy.

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this afternoon Councillor Joan Baird welcomed the Department of Infrastructure’s plan to restrict parking on part of the roadway adjacent to Ballintoy play park.

Councillor Baird of the UUP said ” I lobbied on Council for the children’s play park in Ballintoy to be upgraded and this park has now become one of the most popular play areas in the Borough. However the downside has been that the roadway adjacent has become like a car park obstructing local people from entering their homes and businesses. I have passed by on several occasions when the road has been entirely blocked and not only does this affect local people but more seriously could impede emergency services. The proposed new restrictions are about bringing some semblance of order to parking in the area and there is plenty of space available on the roadway just beside the park. The new restrictions will make the area safer and ensure free access for local traffic”.

Councillor Baird thanked the PSNI and Roads Service for their prompt action when she met with them in the Autumn.
