SINN Féin councillor Ian Friary has again urged the Department for Infrastructure to provide street lighting in the area of Millquarter Primary School at Crosskeys.

Counciilor Friary, a representative of the Bannside area on Mid & East Antrim Borough Council, raised the issue at a recent meeting with the Department.

In a statement to ‘Ballymena Daily’, Cllr Friary said: “During the meeting I pointed out the dangers to which the children are exposed to at the school particularly now during the dark winter mornings and evenings.

“I have followed this up again with another email, again highlighting the dangers of the road.

“Fathers, mothers and local residents have raised this issue with me on numerous occasions and I will continue fighting on their behalf. The erection of streetlights is the only answer to this problem.

“I’m fearful of the consequences if these dangerous conditions are allowed to continue.”
