Progress on £2.7 million investment in Limavady area

25 November, 2008

Sinn Féin Regional Development Minister, Conor Murphy, has welcomed Roads Service's progress on investment totalling £2.7million in the Limavady Council area this year.

Speaking ahead of this evening's meeting between Roads Service and Limavady Borough Council, the Minister said:

"A scheme to provide a right turn facility on the Ballyquin Road at its junction with the Ballyavelin Road is nearing completion. The scheme will also include the provision of a bus lay-by and associated footway to link to the Ardgarvan Cottages.

"Schemes under the 'Speed Management at Rural Schools' programme have commenced at St John's Primary School, Dernaflaw and at St Peter's and St Paul's Foreglen. This work includes flashing signs which will operate at times pupils enter or leave the schools, and coloured carriageway surfacing at the signs.

"A £165,000 scheme to realign and widen the Drumacarney Bridge on the Baranailt Road, just south of Limavady is planned for later this financial year.

"Schemes which have already been completed this financial year include a shared use path on the Greystone Road Limavady, between Broad Road and Edenmore Road roundabout, which will facilitate both pedestrians and cyclists." ENDS
