Published: 29 September, 2017

Cllr Keith Haughian has once again stressed the need for a pedestrian barrier on Lake Street.

"I have spoken to TransportNI representatives around a number of road safety issues in the North Lurgan area. The traffic calming measures for Lake Street are currently being examined by the department but I emphasised the need for urgent action around the pedestrian barriers leading from Kilwilke road to lake street and also at the Levin road lake street roundabout.

"Too many serious accidents and near misses have occurred. We almost lost a young girl to a serious accident along here last year, and we can't wait any longer.

"The department official has assured me that it is a priority."
