Sinn Féin Representative Sandra Duffy has called for a complete review of the one of the city’s busiest road junctions along the Buncrana Road
She said some residents have described the junction as a “death trap” and that they are “a bag of nerves” everytime they used the junction.
She said “I am calling on DRD Road Service to have an urgent review of this junction and put in place additional safety measures as soon as possible. The Buncrana Road is a fast moving road for traffic which sees thousands of vehicles a day. Its junction with the Whitehouse Road and Upper Galliagh is perilous at times ,it’s a nightmare for drivers to exiting either road out onto the Buncrana Road and there isn’t a day goes by there isn’t near accidents occurring .People are also unsure of who has the right of way.
It could be years before the Buncrana Road is upgraded to a modern standard to link in with Donegal so in the meantime there needs to be new high visibility road markings and additional road safety signage put in place as an interim measure.
