Muir welcomes plans to improve safety at Victoria Road, Holywood

Area to receive Double Yellow Lines

I welcome plans from the Road Service to extend double yellow lines at the Victoria Road, Bangor Road junction in Holywood.

After sustained lobbying I am glad that plans are afoot to improve Road Safety at this junction. Local residents have long complained about this dangerous bend which is often difficult to navigate when a large part of the road is taken up with parked cars.

Extension of the Double Yellow lines will hopefully reduce the risk of an accident by giving motorists a safer way to navigate the junction and clear lines of sight. The Road Service’s proposals were recently approved by North Down Borough Council and I hope will be implemented without delay.
