EAST Antrim MLA Roy Beggs has welcomed the announcement that bi-lingual traffic signs will not be introduced locally.
The UUP representative said: “I welcome the common sense decision of the Ulster Unionist Regional Development Minster, Danny Kennedy, not to introduce bi-lingual signs onto NI roads.
“Good directional signage should be clear and uncluttered. Given the short time available to view a road sign as you drive by, it is particularly important that information is presented as simply as possible. I believe that bi-lingual signs would also have contributed to increase risks on our roads.”
