McKnight welcomes introduction of double yellows at Racecourse junction

Sinn Féin Councillor Caoimhe McKnight has welcomed the introduction of double lines at the entrance to a busy shopping complex on the Racecourse Road.

Councillor McKnight said “I would like to thank the Transport NI for installing these much need double yellow lines. This is a very busy area due to the number of different retail units in the area and is often extremely difficult for drivers to get out of this junction with cars parked on either side.

There have been numerous accidents in the area over the last few months and my party colleague Tony Hassan has been raising safety at this junction for some tme.So this will hopefully help the situation there .

We are hopeful that a traffic survey will soon be carried out along this stretch of road so that a new pedestrian crossing can also been installed to make this road safer to cross.
