Beggs urges Department to provide traffic lights at the top of Trooperslane, Greenisland

Roy Beggs MLA at Trooperslane, Greenisland

East Antrim Ulster Unionist Assemblyman Roy Beggs has called on the Department for Infrastructure to carry out a road safety assessment of the junction at Trooperslane with the B90. The MLA has called for the road safety assessment with a view to providing traffic lights at the junction, with traffic expected to increase in the area once the much needed additional park and ride provision is complete at the nearby train station.

Roy Beggs MLA, who is also the Ulster Unionist Party Transport Spokesperson said “The additional park and ride provision at Trooperslane is welcome and I look forward to the site opening for public transport users on the Larne Line. At peak times, this could mean that there is additional traffic congestion at the top of Trooperlane, which does not currently have traffic lights to provide access to the B90. I have tabled questions to Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon to ask ‘what road safety assessments her Department has undertaken at the junction of the B90 Top Road with Trooperslane, Greenisland?’ Furthermore, I have asked the Minister ‘what consideration has been given to providing traffic lights at the top of the Trooperslane road, Greenisland to promote free flowing traffic once the park and ride facility has been completed?’
