Roadworks 'near miss' could have been worse

Call for more considerate driving

A string of 'near misses' between vehicles and road workers has triggered a plea for more considerate driving.

The Department of Infrastructure is urging road users to take extra care where surveys and repairs are being carried out.

Recently, a Highway Services employee came within inches of serious injury by a car performing a dangerous overtake in Gansey.

DoI member David Anderson called it an 'unacceptable' risk posed to 'people who are simply trying to do their jobs'.

Roadworks, which are clearly marked and signed, often enforce a mandatory speed limit - violating it can result in prosecution.
