The Ballyarnett councillor said: “In the last few years we have seen a massive increase in traffic using this cross-border road between Derry and Donegal with concerns over the speed on it.

“Local residents are concerned about road safety issues here and it’s apparent that some form of traffic calming and additional road signage is needed.

“It’s very important that this survey is being undertaken to ensure that the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) can implement whatever measures are needed to improve safety along this road.”
