Traffic Disruptions due to cycle lanes

McBride Driving School

As the children are returning to school after the holidays some disruptions may be caused by the work being done at St Mary’s College. As the ongoing work continues a cycle lane has been installed as a part of this. However a yellow box has also been added meaning that cars are no longer allowed to park there. This will cause some confusion and may result in you having to park nearby, this will also only apply in the morning and afternoon so if this does not relate to you keep in mind that there may be more children crossing the road than usual, so plan accordingly.
