Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan has welcomed the news that new traffic lights are being installed on the Racecourse Road outside St Patricks Primary school Pennyburn.
He said “This will help the safety of children and parents who have to cross this road at peak times in the morning and in the afternoon.
I commend Transport N.I. for looking at the safety concerns of the children and parents who attend the school.
It is important that Transport NI do all in their power to have a Safe Route to schools programme in as many schools as possible across the city.
Councillor Tony Hassan also said
I am calling on Transport N.I to install the Safe Routes to schools programme at Hollybush school and at the Ardan Road in Culmore area of the city .When they installed traffic calming measures in that road last year they did not put in the Safe Route scheme at that time.
