Adelaide Park traffic calming moves a step closer

13 July, 2010 - by Alex Maskey

South Belfast Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey and Balmoral Sinn Féin representative Vincent Parker have welcomed confirmation from the Roads Service that Adelaide Park has been given a high prioritisation in relation to the need for traffic calming measures.

This high prioritisation occurred after Sinn Féin made representations to the Regional Development Minister Conor Murphy MP and the Roads Service.

Alex Maskey MLA said,
“The issue of traffic calming on Adelaide Park is one which has been raised with me consistently by residents.

“I raised the issue directly with the Regional Development minister Conor Murphy and also with the roads service. In the wake of this a traffic survey was carried out in the area. The result of this survey is that Adelaide Park has been given a higher priority than was previously the case.

“I would welcome the fact that Adelaide park has been given a higher priority, a move which I hope will see traffic calming measures installed as soon as is practically possible”.

Vincent Parker added,
“I am pleased to see the Regional Development Minister continuing to deliver for the people of South Belfast.

“This higher prioritisation for Adelaide Park will mean that, because the traffic calming program for the 2010/11 financial year has been finalised, it will be considered for inclusion in the following financial year. This is an issue which myself and my Party colleague Alex Maskey will continue to keep high on the agenda when we meet with the Minister and Roads Service officials.”
