SDLP Foyle MLA Mark H Durkan has welcomed moves by Roads Service to look into traffic calming measures for the Creggan Heights area.

“For some time I have been lobbying Roads Service after a number of constituents complained to my office about ongoing traffic and speeding problems,” said Mr Durkan.

“There are lots of young children that play alongside the busy road in Creggan Heights and, unfortunately, there have been a number of children knocked down in recent times. Rightfully, many parents living in Creggan Heights have voiced their concerns and asked for speed bumps, to slow down traffic in order to protect their children.

“I am pleased Roads Service has launched a consultation on plans to deal with this issue and I urge all residents in the area to respond to the consultation to put forward their thoughts on the proposal.

“Please contact my office on 028 71 365516 should anyone require assistance responding to the consultation, or finding out further information. By feeding into the process we can ensure a workable and welcome road traffic solution is reached for the good of the whole community.”
