Mackle calls for measures at the entrance to the Fold

Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Mackle has called for traffic calming measures at the entrance to the Fold in North Street.

He said:

"I have been in contact with Transport NI over the past few months about motorists parking illegally blocking the entrance to the Fold. I have requested traffic calming in this area.

"Transport NI have repainted the road markings but as yet have not carried out any other work. There have been two recent fatalities in the immediate area and residents of the Fold are very concerned.

"I would ask that motorists who park in the area, particularly at mass times, are respectful of the fact that elderly residents and their families deserve safe access to their property.

"The car park in the Fold is for residents and their visitors only. There are ample parking spaces in the area. There is therefore no need to use or block the Fold car park.

"I will continue to lobby Transport NI for additional measures but in the meantime urge people to be aware of the difficulty their actions may cause."
