People campaigning for traffic calming measures to be installed at Bradley’s Pass in Carnhill brought traffic to a brief standstill when they organised a short protest at the junction between Bradley’s Pass and the Glengalliagh Road on Monday.
The protest was led by Sinn Fein Councillor, Tony Hassan, who criticised TransportNI for failing to install the lights before the agreed timescale.
“There is frustration in the local community that following being told that these lights were to be installed by the end of March this year we are now nearly into June and there doesn’t appear to be any movement,” said Colr. Hassan.
“The Glengalliagh Road is a very busy road for both motorists and pedestrians. Over the last number of years there have been a lot of accidents at its junction with Bradley’s Pass.”
Colr. Hassan said the campaign to have the traffic calming measures installed has been ongoing for quite some time.
“Calls to have traffic lights installed there have been ongoing for as long as I have been in Derry City Council. The campaign for the lights to be installed has involved all political parties’, community groups, residents and it has been very well covered in both the local print and broadcast media.”
