The local Councillor explained, “Last September I had a meeting with residents and David Ewing from Roads Service regarding the possible implementation of a one way system in the first and second streets in Barcroft. “Following this, I carried out a full consultation of the residents living in these two streets and a survey was distributed to all houses and residents were asked to indicate their preference in relation to the following: Option 1 – one way in a clockwise direction Option 2 – one way in an anti-clockwise direction Option 3 – No change The results of this consultation showed that:
  • 76.9% chose Option 1
  • 11.5% chose Option 2
  • 9.8% chose Option 3
  • 1.8% had no preference
Kimmins continued, “I have forwarded the responses to Roads Service who have highlighted the next stages of the process as follows:
  • PSNI have been contacted regarding the enforcement of a one way system and roads service are currently awaiting their response.
  • If PSNI are happy with this, Roads Service will then have to formally advertise this and address any objections that may arise.
  • Legislation will have to be prepared and the final part will be signage.
The local Sinn Féin representative added, “Overall Roads Service believe the completion of this process may take up to 12 months. Anyone wishing further information about this issue can feel free to contact myself.”
