Proposed Traffic Calming Scheme For Portrush

The Department for Infrastructure has announced plans to introduce road humps and other traffic calming measures at Kerr Street in Portrush to control the speed of traffic in the area.

The proposed scheme will consist of :

  • One hump, approximately 5.0 metres long, 5.0 metres wide and 100 millimetres high, located approximately 85 metres north-east of its junction with Castle Erin Road.
  • One hump, approximately 5.0 metres long, 4.5 metres wide and 100 millimetres high, located approximately 62 metres south-east of its junction with Main Street.

Kerbed build-outs will be constructed at each hump to reduce the width of the carriageway to create a pedestrian crossing facility.
