In light of the worsening traffic situation in Moira I welcome our MP’s renewed attention to the problem.
However, as the long-time campaigner Neil Johnston has found, it takes more than a sporadic effort to get anything done.
To honour a promise made during the last local government election campaign, I have set up a petition to obtain 5,000 signatures to be delivered to Stormont. The petition is available at www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/moiraneedsabypass; it went live on 22nd September and has gained pace this week, approaching 400 signatures in just 4 days. The paper version I am presenting door to door each week has also gained around 100 with just a few hours work so far.
My thanks to all who have signed so far, and I would encourage people of every shade of political opinion to sign the petition as this is for everyone’s benefit. If anyone prefers the paper version or has concerns to air, I can be contacted via the local Alliance office on 92671177
