Muir pleased damaged Abbey Street crash barriers to be fixed, at last

Alliance MLA for North Down, Andrew Muir recently submitted a question to the  Minister for Infrastructure regarding the repair of significant damage to the crash barriers at the entrance to Bangor Park and Ride carpark in Abbey Street. 

The Alliance Party Infrastructure Spokesperson said: "Following an extended period of damage to this crash barrier, I submitted a formal Assembly question to the Minister as to when this will be repaired. People are rightly fed up seeing this and other barriers left damaged for what seems like an eternity. 

These barriers were installed as part of works to spruce up Bangor Town Centre a number of years ago and are more ornate than the standard guardrails.   

I am glad the Minister is now able to confirm that a contractor has been instructed to fabricate a matching guardrail and should be in place by the end of November 2021. A case perhaps of better late than never with action still required tackle many other reported and long awaited repairs around rest of North Down"
