Two-vehicle collision at notorious Lurgan town centre junction

North Street Lurgan

There has been a two-vehicle collision at a notorious Lurgan town centre junction this morning (Wednesday).

The incident happened around 11am at the junction of North Street and William Street.

No injuries have been reported but the road is blocked from Church Place onto North Street.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area.

It comes just weeks after motorists were urged to respect the no left turn rule at William street traffic lights.

While there is no suggestion today’s incident is a result of this, it comes as a stark reminder of the dangers this particular junction poses.

Speaking recently, 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”.

Adding: “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.”
