Alex Easton MLA calls for a pedestrian crossing for St Columbanus College.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

Alex Easton MLA has today called for a pedestrian crossing for the Ballymaconnell Road near to provide a safety crossing for children crossing the road. This is the only major school in Bangor that does not have a safety crossing of some description with a school whose numbers are heading to well over 700. Having met with the head and also concerned parents and having taken the time to view the school pupils getting out at 3,30pm it is clear that TNI and the Department of Education have a responsibility to lobby and help deliver a Pedestrian safety crossing of some description to provide a safe crossing for our children but also for the residents living in the area that use the local shops. I have written to the Education Authority and Transport NI and asked for a survey to be conducted with a view for action to be taken.”
