Glen Road to be assessed for traffic calming

Published: 24 November, 2011

"The Glen Road is the only route to and from the major housing developments of Altiskane, Glenevish Hill, and Ballee Grove and as the area has developed in recent years there has been a major increase the volume of traffic using the road.

"Given the nature of the site lines on the Glen Road, the view of oncoming traffic is often obscured and the ever present risk of collision is heightened further if vehicles are speeding along the road.

"There is strong concern throughout the area about motorist and pedestrian safety and I have therefore asked Roads Service to take all relevant issues into account as part of its assessment of the Glen Road i.e. site lines, volume of traffic and speed limits. ENDS
