Infrastructure Minister John O’Dowd has visited the village of Moy in County Tyrone to discuss traffic issues in the area.
During his visit the Minister met with elected representatives on site to hear at first-hand their concerns about the speed and volume of traffic as it enters the village on the busy A29 Dungannon Road.
Minister O’Dowd said:
“I was pleased to be able to visit the village of Moy to receive representations about the concerns of residents living beside this busy trunk road and to be able to experience at first hand some of the daily challenges facing residents in terms of road safety and noise.
“I have asked my officials to consider enhanced signage on the approach to the village along with other possible measures to increase driver awareness of the speed limits within the village and to encourage greater compliance with the existing 30 mph speed limit.”
