The proposals in relation to Queen Street car park are not a fait accompli according to Junior Minister, Gerry Kelly. Mr Kelly was deputising for his party colleague, Conor Murphy (Minister for Economic Development) at an adjournment debate in the Assembly on 20 May.
The debate was requested by Tommy Gallagher MLA, with all our local Assembly members lending their support. There was a consensus of opinion that this particular Roads Service proposal would do nothing to address the problem of traffic flow within the town, and would only place further financial burdens upon the town's workers. There was agreement that a proper and sustainable traffic management plan was required.
So hopefully Roads Service will take it on board that there is no quick fix solution to this problem, and certainly not one that discriminates against workers.
