Lavery secures warning signage for dangerous bend

Alliance Lurgan representative Peter Lavery has said the possibility for road accidents at a dangerous corner will be reduced after he successfully lobbied for warning posts to be installed.

Raising the concerns of a local constituent with Transport NI over a bend with a steep drop-off on Derrymore Road close to Loughview Estate, Peter said the organisation has now confirmed they will be putting marker posts at the location in the near future. He added it was a welcome move.

"During a recent survey carried out by Alliance in the local area, I spoke to a resident concerned about the lack of warning signs at a corner on the Derrymore Road, close to Loughview Estate," he said.

"Following representations to Transport NI, they have agreed on the need for signage warning drivers and have now confirmed to me marker posts will be erected at the location and I encourage them to ensure they are there as soon as possible.

"Anyone who has driven on this stretch of road will be able to tell you this is a dangerous corner. I don't doubt for a moment these posts will massively reduce the possibility for accidents, injuries and possibly even worse."
