Muir welcomes Seapark traffic improvements

Seapark Railway Bridge from Google Maps
I welcome plans from the Roads Service to improve traffic flow at Seapark, Holywood.The Roads Service plan to introduce double yellow lines at the Seapark Railway Bridge following representations made by me on behalf of local residents.

Parking and traffic flow at Seapark has been a long running problem and whilst I am disappointed that the Roads Service do not plan to introduce more parking restrictions to enable easier access by residents the planned course of action at the Railway Bridge will remove a chronic bottle neck.

When the weather is warm or key sporting fixtures take place at the nearby pitches traffic can be particularly busy with some residents reporting difficulties getting in and out of their properties. Access to the A2 Bangor to Belfast Road is also difficult with no actions to relieve the problem promised by the Roads Service despite the clear dangers.

I will continue to campaign for a long term solution to the traffic troubles at Seapark and, in the knowledge that parking is the pressing problem, raise the issue of parking provision at the Seapark play park next month when Council resumes.
