Plans Submitted To Develop 850 New Homes In L'Derry

However, concerns have been raised on how the traffic will impact the development, which is adjacent to the Caw Roundabout.

The roundabout is a very busy intersection which carries in excess of 50,000 vehicles per day.

Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard met with the Ballyoan Housing Development team to discuss the issues pointed out in the latest Transport Assessment (TA).

Minister Hazzard said: "This is a hugely important development for Derry and my Department is committed to working with the developer and his team to seek to address the traffic related issues arising from the TA.

"The nature and scale of this development required a TA to be submitted to identify the traffic impacts generated by the proposed development as well as proposed mitigation measures and sustainable transport measures in the form of walking, cycling and bus provision to facilitate this development."

The review of the TA and options study for Caw & Gransha Roundabouts is currently being undertaken by the Department's Consultant partner Amey. A draft report is expected to be with the Department within weeks.
