Ballymoney Councillor Darryl Wilson has called for Transport NI to address Congestion at Castle Street and Milltown Road in the town.
Cllr Wilson said : “Over the last number of years the traffic congestion on the Milltown Road and Castle Street in Ballymoney has become increasingly problematic.
Many commuters face considerable delays to their journey due to sizeable tailbacks on these roads, the tailbacks then cause problems for those who use the area on a regular basis, including residents in the Bravallen Road and Finvoy Road areas.
I have in contact with Transport NI several times over the last year. I have requested that they look at various options in a bid to ease congestion in the future.
TransportNI have informed me that they have a number of schemes programmed in the vicinity of Castle Street. These include a) adding audible signals for pedestrians crossing the traffic signals at Main Street. This will involve a slight adjustments to the signal timings. b) Resurfacing works at Gate End. This will involve a slight alteration to some kerbs and lining.
They have also committed to carry out queue length survey which will be carried out after the above works have been completed, which is likely to be around October.”
