An appeal has been made by MEA Alderman Robin Cherry to Transport NI to include ‘ground cover’ including shrubs along the A26 when putting the finishing touches to the dualling scheme.

Speaking during Transport NI’s recent spring consultation meeting with Mid & East Antrim’s Community Planning Commmittee, Alderman Cherry said that such work would encourage wildlife such as bumble bees whose population, he said, was in decline.

The A26 scheme to dual 7.8km of the Frosses Road between Glarryford crossroads and Drones Road will continue for another 28 months, with completion expected in summer 2017.
