Cllr Quinn welcomes Clonoe speed limits

SDLP Councillor Malachy Quinn has welcomed the erection of both the 40mph and 30mph speed limits in Clonoe but has urged that more work needs to be done in order to make the area safer for those living there.

Councillor Quinn said “It’s been a long time since these speed limits where first approved by Transport NI and even longer since residents first voiced their concerns about the speed on the moor and Mountjoy Roads and the fact that they have now officially installed a 40mph is to be welcomed. The 30mph is also very welcomed in Housing developments as well but I urge that more needs to be done in order to make the area safer.

He continued “I have been speaking to a number of residents over the past number of days all of whom are happy to finally see speed limits in the area but have stressed that there a lot of children who are using the play park and have to cross a very busy road in order to get to it. Over the past year I have been in contact with Transport NI to argue in favour of further traffic calming measures and I will keep doing that until we get a result we feel will protect road users in the area.”
