Traffic Lights needed on Knockmore Road Lisburn Urgently

This petition had 3,344 supporters

Despite substantial building in the area developers have failed to deliver on promises to install Traffic lights at junctions on the Knockmore Road over a period of 10+years specifically the Ballinderry and Ballymacash junctions. Due to significant development the Brokerstown Road junction also requires traffic calming measures to be put in place.

Please sign this petition instructing Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council (LCCC) to revoke planning permission and prevent any further building until the developers meet their legal obligations under Article 40 of their planning agreement. We can make a difference together!

As I’m sure you are aware there have been numerous accidents, near misses and fatalities over the years on this extremely busy 50 mph road. As reported by the Ulster Star on 28th March 2017, Transport NI advised that developers are in breach of their Article 40 planning agreement that is the responsibility of the planning authority to enforce. This cannot be allowed to continue. Local residents are placed in an unsafe, dangerous situation. One more, accident, serious injury or death is one too many.

There are plans to connect the Knockmore Road directly with Sprucefield (Knockmore Link Road) which will worsen traffic in the area significantly. Common sense dictates junctions must be improved first. LCCC has granted planning permission for a Bargains store to open in the old Down Road pub location which again will place more stress on the roads.

Please take one minute to sign this petition to get action on this life or death matter.
