Sign of the times in the Strand
Residents and visitors to district will have no problems finding their way about now - thanks to new street signs

by Joe Nawaz

Signs in Strand Walk have finally been erected after Belfast City Council was lobbied by local representatives and the South Belfast News highlighted the issue.

Deputy Mayor and local councillor, Joe O’Donnell, is delighted for the residents.

“This is a very welcome move by the Council. It was brought to light 12 months ago that this area suffered from a lack of proper street signs.

“Strand Walk has a lot of twists and turns in it and without directions, services like the fire brigade and ambulances have had difficulty finding correct addresses in the past. Even simple things like ordering a taxi or take away food had become difficult.

“There are a lot of elderly residents in Strand Walk and the absence of the signs made life especially difficult for them.”

Cllr O’Donnell was quick to praise Belfast City Council for taking the matter seriously.

“To be fair to them, they were very helpful about the whole thing and were anxious to resolve the matter. This is a real plus for the residents of Strand Walk.”
