TransportNI (formerly known as the Roads Service) has installed traffic calming measures at the entrance to Grangemore and Ard Grange.

The development has been welcomed by local councillor, Colly Kelly and local residents.

“Recently, I raised residents’ concerns about traffic in the Grangemore and Ard Grange areas,” explained Colr. Kelly.

“The residents wanted to see developments with TransportNI in relation to the speed of traffic travelling through the area and road markings.”

One of the most common concerns residents raised when discussing the issue of traffic was over the speed at which vehicles both entered and exited the estate.

“There was a particular concern about traffic at the main entrance into Grangemore and the speed of traffic both entering and leaving the development,” said Colr. Kelly.

“I am pleased that traffic calming measures have been introduced here.

“This a very busy junction with over 300 houses in Grangemore and Ard Grange.

“Both myself and residents are disappointed that a number of road markings we had been lobbying for have not been introduced at this time but I will continue to press for this to happen.”
