Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan has welcomed proposed road safety measures being implemented in the Ardan Road area of Culmore but called for priority to be given to a “safer routes” to school programme at Hollybush Primary school to make it safer for school children.

Councillor Hassan said: “I welcome this scheme at Ardan Road but more needs to be done.

“Over the past year Sinn Féin has called on DRD Roads service to introduce traffic calming measures in the Culmore area such as Elmvale and Ardnalee and to put in place measures such a “safer route” to school at Hollybush Primary school.

“Over the next few months we will be meeting with all the agencies in the city to look at what can be done to enhance the Culmore Point Road and others areas in Culmore.
