Sorcha McGeown Lurgan

Drivers in Lurgan are being urged to to respect the no left turn rule at William street traffic lights.

Sinn Féin spokesperson Sorcha McGeown said that while while it may seem convenient for drivers to take a left at this junction “they must remember that you are turning into North Street as pedestrians have the right of way to cross the road.

“There have been several reports of near misses with pedestrians having to dodge cars as they cross the road.

Ms McGeown added: “The William street junction is extremely busy and I would urge drivers to exercise caution regardless of which direction they are travelling.”
