Street lighting call rejected

Thursday, 24 August 2017

A CLOUGHMILLS resident's call for street lighting to be installed along the Drumadoon Road between the village and the Frosses Road has been rejected.
Transport NI say the rural nature of Drumadoon Road means that it does not fit the criteria, a response which caused a local MLA to call for a policy review.
Mr Tommy Clarke made his call after reading last week's Chronicle story outlining difficulties Translink passengers were facing with the new Drumadoon Park and Ride.
Mr Clarke said: "If you have to walk from the bus stop and Park and Ride up to Cloughmills village, though there is a footpath the whole way, there is no street lightning until you get up to Logan's hardware shop.
“That stretch is pitch black and is used by many people walking, commuters using the buses and dog walkers. In winter people getting the bus home from Belfast from work have to walk home in pitch black up the road."
