The Minister for Infrastructure has approved the release of funds for a new zebra crossing to be constructed on Janvrin Road outside Springfield Stadium.
The Department for Infrastructure (DfI) had received a request for a new crossing on Janvrin Road to make it safer for pedestrians.
DfI officers carried out a safety assessment and made on-site observations. It was also known that usage was planned to increase in the future, through increased crossing need by nursery children.
Following this research and analysis, DfI officers concluded that there was a good case for a crossing.
DfI will now embark on detailed design work followed by construction. The new crossing is planned for construction in June and will cost in region of £20,000.
The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Eddie Noel said “As well as adults there are a lot of children that cross Janvrin Road on their way to school and nursery school. I am please we are able to make it easier for them”
