Motorists have been urged to follow the diversion signs on the Lower Strand Road whilst major roadworks are taking place. Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper’s call comes after concerns motorists are disregarding the signs and causing traffic problems in many of the side streets there. Councillor Cooper said “I have been contacted by residents in a number of the side streets off the Lower Strand Road with complaints that many motorists are not following the diversions signs during the ongoing roadwork’s taking place. The result has been gridlock in their streets and in particular around Pennyburn Pass. "They are very concerned with major work set to take place this weekend the situation will become worst as drivers try to take sort cuts. "I would urge drivers to follow the diversion signs that have been placed there and if possible avoid the area whilst these roadworks are taking place.”
