Delargy reiterates calls for the introduction of speed indicators on the Foyle Road

Sinn Féin MLA Pádraig Delargy has reiterated calls for the introduction of speed indicators on the Foyle Road.

The Foyle assembly member said he was ‘disappointed’ that a written response from the infrastructure minister ruled out installing the road safety measures.

Pádraig Delargy said:

“Speed indicators should be installed on the Foyle Road to tackle excessive speed, save lives and prevent serious injury.

“Residents have been expressing serious concerns about speed on this road and the fact drivers are travelling much faster than the 30mph limit.

“I had written to the infrastructure minister asking her to work with local road safety groups and residents on the installation of a static speed indicator on this road.

“It’s deeply disappointing that Minister Mallon has ruled this out due to gaps in the legislation and I have now requested a full list of current speed indicators across the north.

“On a normal day, this road is one of the busiest routes into the city centre and is a gateway to Donegal and in the run up to Christmas this will only increase.

“Sinn Féin will continue to campaign for the installation of safety measures on the Foyle Road to ensure that people’s safety remains paramount.”Attachments area
