Progress on £3.1million investment in Antrim

27 November, 2008

Regional Development Minister Conor Murphy has welcomed Roads Service's progress on investment totalling £3.1million in the Antrim Council area this year.

Speaking ahead of this evening's meeting between Roads Service and Antrim Borough Council, the Minister said: "250 metres of footway has been constructed on the southern side of the Dunadry Road, at a cost of £124,000 between Clady Road and the railway bridge. Traffic management at the railway bridge has been improved with the introduction of a priority working system.

"The stopping sight distance has been improved on the Lurgan Road, Crumlin, on the bend at the junction of the Cherryvalley Road, by setting back the hedge and fencing which has opened up the visibility around the bend for motorists both wanting to turn right into Cherryvalley Road and those proceeding on towards Lurgan.

"Traffic calming measures costing £35,000 have been introduced on a number of streets in Randalstown. These included a number of residential areas as well as at the schools on Barnish Road and Craigstown Road.

"Schemes still to be completed this financial year include junction visibility splay improvements at Craigstown Road / Ballylurgan Road, Staffordstown Road / Blackrock Road and at Castle Road / Milltown Road."
