GLENGORMLEY traders have received official confirmation that a new one-way traffic system and additional parking spaces will be introduced in the centre of the town in the coming weeks.

The Times revealed last week how no objections were put forward to the proposals during a formal consultation period, effectively giving the project the green light.

On Thursday (September 8), traders’ representatives met with local politicians and Roads Service officials to hear first hand the good news that plans for additional on-street parking in the town have finally been given the go-ahead.

The meeting, held at the Thunderdome Cafe, heard Roy Gordon, Roads Service Traffic Manger for the area, give confirmation that a one-way system will be introduced along Portland Avenue from Carnmoney Road to Ballyclare Road, permitting the creation of eight new parking bays on the street. He also detailed how six parking bays and two disabled spaces will be created at Farrier Court, and new signage will be erected to direct motorists to the 127-space free car park at Farmley.
