Repair the ‘death trap’ thumbnailKnock Road resident and Dervock community worker Mr Steven Phillips pictured at the scene of the latest accident at a fast bend on the road into the village, where a car left the road and hit a tree last Wednesday. WK01-AM-100

TWO senior Dervock community workers have made a joint call for urgent work to be done on a stretch of the Knock Road near the village that one described as a "death trap."
Dervock Community Association Chair Frankie Cunningham and resident Mr Steven Philips say that potholes, flooding and speeding issues need resolved on this long sweeping bend entering the village from Ballymoney.
Their urgent call for repairs, guttering work and a speed restriction comes after the latest accident on the outskirts of the village last Wednesday evening.
Chairman of Dervock Community Association Mr Frankie Cunningham said: "Concerned drivers have contacted the 'Association' about the volume of water that continues to accumulate at the same location every time there is a downpour of rain on the Knock Rd, Dervock.
“This unnecessary situation will eventually contribute to a road traffic accident or worse if this matter is not addressed."
“Regretfully there was a serious accident last Wednesday December 27 at the spot identified, when a vehicle left the road and collided with a tree."
