Muir welcomes provision for cyclists in Holywood

North Down Alliance Councillor Andrew Muir has welcomed the provision of green Advance Stop boxes at traffic lights across Holywood by The Roads Service.

Commenting on the issue, Councillor Muir said: “After some lobbying I was delighted to see these boxes appear across Holywood and beyond.

“Green Advance Stop boxes are designed to give cyclists a head start at traffic lights rather than having to compete with other vehicles. They are an important safety measure and shouldn’t be entered by motorists until the traffic lights turn green and cyclist has moved away.

“I welcome the provision of these boxes and will continue to encourage the Roads Service, Department of the Environment and North Down Borough Council to take all necessary actions to make cycling a safer, convenient, healthy and environmentally friendly way to travel.”
