Upper Bann MP Carla Lockhart has requested an urgent meeting with Department of Infrastructure officials to explore potential improvements to road safety in Magheralin.
Carla Lockhart said:
“Sadly this morning two young girls were injured in a road traffic incident at the New Forge Road, junction. One remains in hospital and we wish both these children and their family well. My thoughts are also with the driver involved.
"We need to look seriously at steps that can be taken to make this stretch of road safer for all road users. Lots of children use this route on the walk to school or indeed to get a bus to school and that should make safety of paramount importance.
"I have requested a meeting with DfI to explore what can be done and I hope this can be held in the very near future.”
