Beggs welcomes 20mph variable speed limits for local schools

Roy Beggs MLA, who had lobbied the infrastructure minster for the variable 20mph speed limits for a number of local schools in East Antrim has welcomed the announcement that a number of local school are to get the road safety upgrade

Roy Beggs, Ulster Unionist infrastructure spokesperson said, “Reducing speed reduces the likelihood of an accident and the severity of the injuries should one occur . I therefore welcome the announcement that some more local schools are to get the variable 20mph variable speed signage during school opening and closing to reduce the speed of traffic.”

Eden Primary School, Glynn PS on the busy A2 Road are to get the road safety improvement along with and St Nicholas’, Carrickfergus and Kings Park PS, Abbey Abbots Cross PS and Whitehouse PS in Newtownabbey

Roy Beggs went on to say “Whilst this is phase II announcement, I would hope that it will not be too long before a other local schools, particular those on busy traffic routes or with higher speed limits will also get this upgrade to improve the road safety of children on route to and from school”
