Minister confirms plans for Toucan crossing at V36

Infrastructure Minister John O’Dowd has confirmed that design work for a Toucan crossing in the Church Road area of Newtownabbey is underway.

Concerns have been raised about an apparent lack of pedestrian crossing points on the Church Road close to the entrance to the V36.

Residents have recently contacted the Newtownabbey Times to highlight the issue following the opening of “one of the largest skate parks in the UK and Ireland”, the Skate 100 park.
