Carrowcroey Road - Slip, Sliding Away on Route 93

National Route 93 of the National Cycle Network runs from Derry to Bangor via Coleraine, Ballycastle, Larne, Mossley near Newtownabbey, and Belfast. The section between Larne and Newtownabbey is currently not open. The route follows National Route 99 between Belfast and Newtownards via Comber, although a future link will join Belfast and Bangor via the coast.

DRD Minister, Danny Kennedy [right]

Dear Minister, should you be minded to cycle Route 93, there's a high risk that a slight wobble could catapult you into the sheugh that runs alongside this road. Part of the verge has collapsed recently and there's now a steep drop where the tarmac itself has begun to crumble.

The signs indicate that Carrowcroey Road is part of National Cycle Network 93 and that it is liable to subsidence. The single lane road surface has greatly deteriorated since these images were captured in 2011.

In the interests of public safety, NCN 93 should be re-routed a little and more appropriate warning signs should be erected immediately. I understand the matter has been passed to a TransportNI inspector for action.
