A Pedestrian Crossing at Upper Malone to cross into Mary Peters Track!

This petition had 37 supporters


Families, the elderly, and young — as well as teenage athletes – all find it challenging to cross the Upper Malone Road to gain access to Mary Peter’s Track, and the Lagan towpath and cycle paths because there is no pedestrian crossing near the Track.


14,000 athletics visit the track each month, many of whom travel by bus and foot. The main bus lets visitors off at the top of Finaghy Road, forcing them to walk down and cross the Upper Malone Road with no pedestrian crossing. Due to busy traffic, crossing the road to access the facilities can be hazardous.


Last month, Sinn Fein MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir, made a request to the Department of Infrastructure for a crossing to be built in the area. The department carried out a survey but has recently announced it has no plans to introduce a crossing.

We are now calling on Transport NI and the Department of Infrastructure to re-evaluate their decision and put in place plans for a safe pedestrian crossing, before someone is seriously injured.
