Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has written to DRD Roads Service to take up a number of complaints from residents in Grangemore and Ardgrange over the speed ,volume of traffic and lack of road markings there .
He was speaking after meeting with a number of residents.
Councillor Kelly said
“I have been contacted by a number of local residents over the past few months and meet with some this week to discuss a number of concerns they have over the speed, volume of traffic travelling through the area and lack of road markings.
“These are two very large developments with several hundred homes, so it always very busy with traffic anytime of the day or night .I would urge motorists to slow down whilst travelling through the area and to adhere to the speed limits in place in a built up.
The Grangemore and Ardgrange areas have grown considerably in recent years and residents with young families have expressed their concerns to me over speeding cars in the area which pose an obvious risk to children and other pedestrians.And that due to no road markings in some places motorists are actually driving on the wrong side of the road and the residents i spoke to this week told me its only sheer luck there hasn’t been a serious accident particularly on the bend on the way out of the development.
