The move follows a request from Mr Durkan to tackle the issue of careless parking at school drop off and pick up times.
Said the Foyle MLA: “I anm pleased that DfI Roads have taken action to address traffic concerns at Holy Family Primary School.
“During the summer I was contacted about serious issues with inconsiderate and dangerous parking in and around the vicinity of the school, along the upper stretch of the Aileach Road.
“Problems were most profound at school drop off and pick up times.
“I appreciate this is an issue not unique to Holy Family but rather an all too common problem for most schools. However, a few near misses of late prompted the need for urgent intervention.
“The department have now installed a number of bollards and yellow clear zig-zag markings.
“Hopefully this will discourage motorist from stopping close to the crossing facility and enhance the safety of all school users.”Tags:
