Action needed ‘before someone killed’

The Roads Service has been called upon to honour an undertaking to introduce traffic calming measures at Killylane Road, Greysteel before someone is killed or seriously injured.

The call has come from the SDLP Deputy Mayor Councillor Orla Beattie who has reminded Roads Service that there is an outstanding commitment to deal with the road safety issues in this part of Greysteel.

She said: “I work very closely with Roads Service and find them very co-operative and helpful.

“However, I am disappointed that there may be some doubt over a previous obligation to carry out traffic calming measures at Greysteel to reduce speeding on the Killylane Road.

“After carrying out a community survey in Greysteel with our Assembly Member John Dallat we received an assurance from Roads Service that this issue would be addressed but to date nothing has happened and I am concerned that we are now facing another winter when the risk of road accidents rises.

“I am again calling on Roads Service to take forward their commitment to further enhance road safety in the Greysteel area and on the Killylane Road in particular.”
