Double Yellow lines needed for Crawfordsburn Main Street following Resurfacing Works

A request for yellow line re-instatement has been made to the Department for Infrastructure following recent remedial works to the road surface and footpaths at the entrance to the Crawfordsburn Brow Development on Crawfordsburn Main Street. 

North Down Alliance MLA Andrew Muir said “After chasing the Developer for over a year to request works be completed to the road and footways at the entrance to Crawfordsburn Brow Development I was glad to see new surfaces had been put down at the beginning of April this year. Full re-surfacing of Main Street is however now required to properly seam the development into Main Street.   

We will have to wait and see if these latest works stand the test of time but in the interim I have requested the re-instatement of double yellow lines along this stretch of the road at the top of the Main Street. It is a busy through road and had previously had double yellow lines on both sides of the road. 

Now there are pavements and curbs at the entrance to the Development cars have been parking along this stretch and causing obstructions. It’s vital the lines are re-instated to prevent problem parking here or even an accident from occurring with vehicles coming round the bend at speed. I will be following up my request with the Department to ensure action is taken promptly.”
