The Issues

Road Safety and Transport - North Down has one of the busiest road networks in Northern Ireland, particularly the A2 Bangor-Belfast road. This should be key consideration in any proposed major developments for North Down. I welcome initiatives such as free public transport for the elderly and investment in rolling stock for our rail system, which will ease the burden on traffic congestion. While our road death figures are the lowest for many years, this is no excuse for complacency, as any family who has suffered the dreadful loss of a loved on the roads can testify. To that end I am in strongly in support of the review of road safety measures and have proposed motions at the Assembly looking at graduate driving schemes, and a reduction in the drink drive limits.
