Speed Restriction To Be Put In Place For Part Of Curragh Road, Coleraine

1 Mins read

The Department Of Infrastructure has opened a consultation today to apply a 50 miles per hour speed limit to lengths of Curragh Road and Rhee Lane, Coleraine.   The following lengths of road are subject to a speed limit of 50 miles per hour :

1. Curragh Road, Route A54, Coleraine, from a point 290 metres north of its junction with Knockaduff Road, Unclassified No. 344, for a distance of 1105 metres in a south-easterly direction.

2. Rhee Lane, Unclassified No. 346, Coleraine, from its northern junction with Curragh Road, Route A54, for a distance of 82 metres in an easterly direction.

Commenting to Causeway Coast Community today on the consultation by DFI which would seek to apply a 50 mph speed limit to lengths of the Curragh road Councillor McCandless UUP advised that he certainly welcomes this.

“The Curragh Rd. is an extremely dangerous road and should always be approached with caution. There were two fatalities on this road last year and it serves to highlight the hazards of the road.

These restrictions would help to deter anyone who does drive at an excessive rate of speed. Speeding decreases the amount of time they have to avoid a crash. To some it may be fun to drive fast but always remember it is incredibly dangerous and you put the well-being of yourself and everyone else at risk on the road.

Sadly a total of 63 people lost their lives on Northern Ireland’s roads in 2017.
If this speed restriction can help reduce this figure it is to be welcomed.

I would stress the importance in this consultation in considering the vicinity approaching Culcrow Primary school.”
