More than £1 million has been spent dealing with collisions on the Mountain Road over the last five years.

The Department of Infrastructure has confirmed there were 127 collisions, resulting in personal injury, between 1 October 2018 and 30 September 2023.

They happened on the Mountain Road between The Hairpin and Johnny Watterson’s Lane.

Seventy-seven were categorised as slight in severity, 45 as serious and five as fatal.
