HC Deb 13 December 1989 vol 163 cc646-7W
Mr. Clifford Forsythe

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Antrim, South on 5 December, if he will now carry out, at the earliest possible moment, a traffic census on Killead road, Killead village; and if he will indicate the number of heavy commercial vehicles included in the Ballyrobin road, Killead road and Oldstone road traffic census.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

[holding answer 8 December 1989]: Traffic flows between December and March are normally lower than during the rest of the year and may not give a reliable indication. The Department of the Environment does not intend to carry out a traffic census at this location at present.

When the last classified traffic census was carried out in 1984 the number of heavy commercial vehicles using these roads was as follows:

Number of heavy commercial vehicles per 16-hour day
Road Number
Ballyrobin road 465
Killead road 1,105
Oldstone road 544
