Not Into My Yard Please! Signpost For Cushendun

1 Mins read

A local resident is fed up with cars, camper vans, lorries and all types of vehicles arriving in his yard because a roundabout in Knocknacarry doesn’t have a sign for Cushendun.

Councillor Margaret Anne McKillop takes up the story:

My constituent is fed up turning round all kinds of vehicles which are arriving in his yard at all times of the day and night and he wants a sign pointing to Cushendun to ward them off his territory.

I don’t think his request is unreasonable and I have asked Transport NI to invest in a simple directional sign which would keep these people on the right road and avoid what has become a persistent nuisance.

Of course we welcome visitors, camper vans and all but not in our backyards and this little illustration points to the need for a complete revision of all signage in the Glens of Antrim.
There are frequent reports of visitors getting lost and this example at Knocknacarry illustrates the issues at stake.

The development of the Causeway Coast and the increasing importance of the Glens of Antrim as a tourist trail is good news but it has to be managed so that people do not get lost and road safety is a key factor in managing all this.
