Update on Pedestrian crossing by Cherryvalley shops

RACKS has been pressing Transport NI for a pedestrian crossing across Gilnahirk Road at Cherryvalley shops.  We challenged the priority ranking, which resulted in a higher priority, but alas it is still some time away.  In the meantime, TNI has committed to adding a pedestrian crossing facility to cross Gilnahirk Road on the traffic lights at the junction with Kings Road as per the accompanying letter

20170815 TNI to CLyttleMLA

Thanks to Chris Lyttle MLA and to local resident Morris Duncan for their help in progressing this request.

Post Script Jan 2018

Transport NI has reneged on its commitment to  add a pedestrian crossing facility to cross Gilnahirk Road on the traffic lights at the junction with Kings Road because it would hamper traffic!  Does convenience for motorists out-rank pedestrian safety?  See attached letter.
