1 Mins read

Mr Robin Swann, the North Antrim Ulster Unionist MLA and Constituency Chairman, has secured assurances from Transport Northern Ireland that measures will be taken to improve the conditions of a number of roads in the Bushmills locality.

Assemblyman Swann, the UUP Chief Whip and Chairman of the Stormont Public Accounts Committee, said: “I had contacted TransportNI and raised a road safety issue at the Distillery with an increased number of tourists crossing the road to the Spar, and asked if a safety assessment could be carried out at this point,” said Assemblyman Swann.

Responding to Mr Swann, a TransportNI representative said: “I will arrange for an assessment to be carried out on Main Street in the vicinity of the Spar shop to establish if there is a need for any additional pedestrian facilities at this location. An Initial Site Survey and Preliminary Assessment will be undertaken to ascertain whether a full assessment is required.

“This initial assessment will include carrying out a pedestrian/cycle/vehicle survey on Main Street in the vicinity of the Spar. I will get back to you with the outcome of the survey,” said the TransportNI representative.

Assemblyman Swann added: “I am pleased these situations are moving forward and the roads around Bushmills, especially the ones I have mentioned, will be made safer for all to use.”
