Bollards to restrict vehicular access at Burnthill Road

Roads Service has confirmed that it is to install bollards at Burnthill Road in Glengormley to stop vehicles from using the grass area at Pembrooke.

The area has been plagued by anti-social behaviour in recent years, and some residents want access through the area restricted.

Policing and Community Safety Partnership members met with local residents and police last week to discuss the ongoing issues in the area.

“It was quite a constructive meeting,” said Alderman Paul Girvan. “There is no doubt that this access is creating problems for people living in the immediate area. Hopefully the bollards will improve things, but there are still issues regarding anti-social behaviour and the right of way that will have to be looked at.”

A Roads Service spokesperson said that the work to install the bollards should be completed within the next three or four weeks.
