Town grinds to a halt with day trippers & Parades

WITH plans to change traffic flow underway on Lord Street, many hope that they taking into account the increasing problems with traffic jams caused by events and day trippers. For businesses, the hot weather, for some, it has lead to a much needed injection of cash, but for others it has been extremely problematic. Over the Bank Holiday Monday and over the weekend, thousands flocked to the town to go to the seaside. To add to the issues on Bank Holiday Monday, 30 May 2016, 1 of the annual Loyalists Parade took place as well, in the Town Centre. What are your views on the Town Centre's Traffic System at present and how would you fix the issues that we have been experiencing of late? Please email us to your views about our road network:- To see more of our photographs that we took on the day, please click on here now!

It's worth noting that the next march will be held, on Saturday, 11 June 2016, when the Apprentice Boys of Derry, Liverpool Area Branch Club's Annual Parade And Outing takes place. So expect some delays again, but it's often worth watching the Parade.
