The roads service along with Newry, Mourne & Down District Council has announced revolutionary new plans to change all Newry traffic lights we can reveal.
From Monday onwards all traffic lights will not have the traditional ‘beeping’ system in place but will instead have the voice of Tony Smith shouting ‘Riser Friends’ continuously.
A council spokeswoman told us:
“We’ve noticed lots of people are getting bored of the usual beep beep noise when it is ok to cross the roads when the green man shows.
To that end we have recorded Tony Smith shouting ‘Riser Friends’ on a continuous loop that will be the new way to let pedestrians know it is ok to cross the road.”
