11.  Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Baird, seconded by Alderman McCandless (referred from Council Meeting 25 June 2019)

“Over the past year there have been numerous collisions at the road junctions most used by traffic approaching and leaving the Dark Hedges. Sadly a young man from

USA was killed in one such accident in September 2018. After lobbying the Roads Service and PSNI new high visibility Give Way signs were erected in October 2018 at two of the junctions but sadly the accident rate has not declined. Apart from the obvious high risk to life at these junctions the collisions have necessitated high level presence from the Ambulance Service, Air Ambulance Service and Police on an almost weekly frequency. Local people now live in fear in what has become treacherous international road junctions.

In support of lobbying currently underway I would ask that Council write to the Permanent Secretary at DfI and the Chief Constable for NI to have STOP signs put in place immediately at the Fivey Road and Bregagh Road junctions with Gracehill Road and that this is followed by other effective measures to ensure safety is paramount at these junctions. Furthermore that the Fivey Road junction with the Drones Road is risk assessed and appropriate action taken to ensure safety”.

12.  Notice of Motion proposed by Alderman Finlay, seconded by Councillor McAuley (referred from Council Meeting 27 August 2019)
