Glenavy road concerns raised with Minister - Kearney

27 June, 2016 - by Declan Kearney


Declan Kearney South Antrim MLA has raised a question today with the Infrastructure Minister, Chris Hazzard, concerning existing road safety dangers in Glenavy village including the Main Street and adjoining Chapel and Glen Roads.

 Speaking today Mr Kearney said:

 “I raised the issue of road safety concerns in Glenavy village with the Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard after meeting with the Glenavy Residents Association on Saturday last.

 “Glenavy is a fast growing village and the volume of traffic is dramatically increasing. Along the busy main street there are no dedicated pedestrian crossings or traffic calming measures.

 “Concerns have also been raised regarding the volume of traffic and the safety of the Chapel and Glen Roads which lead to the local church, school, community hall and sports clubs & facilities.

 “I hope that by bringing these concerns to the Minister's attention and asking for road safety surveys to be undertaken that this will begin a process of urgent remedial works.

 “I will be meeting with the Minister in the coming weeks to further address these concerns and take my representations forward.”
