North Antrim DUP MLA and Member of the Policing Board Mervyn Storey has commented following an accident on the A26 at the junction of the Frosses Road and the Greenhill Road on the outskirts of Ballymoney.
The accident happened this afternoon and was attended by the emergency services and the NI Air Ambulance.
Commenting Mervyn Storey said:
“Yet again we have had another accident on our roads and on the A26. Our thoughts are with those involved. A word of appreciation again must go to our emergency services who were quickly and efficiently in attendance at the scene.
“While it is too early to comment on the cause of the accident, when something like this happens it always raises peoples comments and concerns about junctions on the A26 such as this one at the Greenhill road. Indeed just on Friday I meet with the Divisional Roads Manager for Road Service Northern Division Mr David Porter to discuss the dual carriageway extension of the A26 from the Ballycastle roundabout to the Portrush Road Roundabout, and concerns about the Kirk Road, Knock Road and Greenhill junctions.
“Regrettably such discussions cannot change the events of this afternoon.
“When we have the full circumstances of the accident we will be better informed as we plan to have discussions with the newly appointed Minister for Infrastructure Nicola Mallon MLA regarding the further extension of the duelling of the A26.”
