Sinn Féin Local Government Candidate has requested that immediate Road Safety Measures be instated at the junction of the Ballymaconnelly Road and Bann Road outside Rasharkin following a number of accidents over the past few weeks.
Miss Peacock said, “I have written to Roads Service to request that Road Safety measures be instated at this location urgently given the number of accidents that have occurred. There have been many concerned local people in touch with me on this issue and it appears that many motorists who are unfamiliar with the area have not seen the junction coming up and have not been able to get stopped on time and unfortunately this has resulted in traffic accidents. I have requested increased signage and road markings to highlight the junction and that lighting be considered in the area so that visibility and awareness of the junction is increased.”
“I await a response from Roads Service to this request.”
