Mc Hugh welcomes fencing and signage for Glebe

Published: 25 April, 2013

Sinn Féin Councillor Maolíosa Mc Hugh says that damaged sections of wooden fencing between the recreation/green area running alongside Garvan Road in the Glebe is to be repaired, and where necessary replaced, following representations he has been making to Strabane District Council's Technical Services Department on behalf of local residents.

He said,

"The need for an 'over-hall' of this fencing, which runs from St Theresa's Primary School up to the Community Centre, is among a number of local issues I have been pressing statutory agencies on and I now welcome confirmation from technical Services that work will now be undertaken to repair, and where necessary replaced damaged sections of this fencing.

"This remedial work is important for health and safety reasons given that it provides protection to youngsters who use the recreation/green area from the adjoining Garvan Road.

"This over-hall will also serve to compliment efforts by local people, and particularly by the local community group, to secure enhances facilities and environmental improvements for the area.

"On a separate issue, a directional sign for Sperrin View in the Glebe is now to be erected out on the main Peacock Road, following representations I made to Council on behalf of local residents who citied the constant problems visitors and delivery people have in locating their homes because of the absence of such signage.

"Roads Service has also agreed to assess a request for a stop sign to be installed at the junction within Sperrin View following complaints I have received about a number of near misses at this point and I am hopeful that this can be processed as quickly as possible.
