The Newry and Armagh MLA says, “At the Committee for Infrastructure I stressed my concern to Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon that in the draft road safety strategy to 2030, the target to reduce those killed in collisions has decreased from 60% to 50% when compared with the previous strategy to 2020.

 

 

“And while other targets have seen an increase in the new strategy and this is welcome, I urged the Minister to look at strengthening that specific target.

“I was pleased that a Department official stated that they will reflect on Sinn Féin’s calls for a more ambitious target within the new strategy.

“Road Safety has always been a priority for me.

“And I will continue to campaign for our roads to be safer to use for all road users on this island,” she adds.
