Moves to ease gridlock at busy junction -Duddy

Sinn Féin Councillor Sharon Duddy has said she has contacted the Department of Infrastructure to see if there are any measures that could be installed at the junctions of Marlborough Terrace, Beechwood Avenue to keep the free flow of traffic at peak times of the day.

Councillor Duddy said

“I have been receiving complaints about the constant gridlock of traffic at peak times of the day on Marlborough Terrace, Beechwood Avenue and Laburnum Terrace, with a particular problem for vehicles exiting and entering the junction at the bottom of Beechwood Avenue.

 “This is also causing problems for residents being able to park outside their homes, as well air pollution.Anyone who would travel through the area knows the problems both motorists and resident have to encounter on a daily basis.

“I have written to the Department of Infrastructure to look at the possibility of introducing a Yellow Grid box at this junction or there may be some other solutions which would hopefully free up the traffic and help ease the gridlock.

 “As soon as I get a reply from the department I will let residents know of the outcome.
