Objector Is Causing A Delay To A Proposal To Place Waiting Restrictions On The Mountsandel Road

1 Mins read

An objector is causing a delay to a proposal to place waiting restrictions on the Mountsandel Road.

Following numerous complaints from constituents, Maurice Bradley MLA asked the Department for Infrastructure to look into the problem of parked vehicles along the stretch of road from Mount Street to the site of the old hospital.
“My office received numerous complaints in relation to safety, “said the MLA.

“Following the implementation of parking charges at Terrace Row, drivers have been using the Mountsandel Road for parking to avoid parking fees.
“Following contact from my office, DFI Roads carried out numerous surveys and noted that vehicles parking is hindering traffic progression, and as a result creating road safety concerns.
“Opinions have been sought in relation to the implementation of waiting restrictions,” explained Bradley.

“This week, in an update from DFI, it was revealed that an objector had contacted the Department raising concerns about the proposed changes.
“This means that there will be a delay in the process as the Department are now required to provide additional parking surveys.”

Bradley went on: “Parking is a controversial issue and I can understand the frustration of residents when they cannot get parked near their homes. Similarly, if there is a safety issue, it is important that the issue is addressed.
“I welcome the introduction of a Residents’ Only pilot scheme in Belfast this week.

“I have been pressing the Department for similar schemes here within the Causeway Coast and Glens area, particularly Portrush, however I have been told that no other schemes will be implemented until the pilot scheme has been evaluated,” said the MLA.
