Published: 11 November, 2013

Castlederg Sinn Féin Cllr Ruairí Mc Hugh has welcomed measures to improve wheelchair access in the local Dergview Estate in the town following a joint meeting he held with Roads Service and Housing Executive officials.

He said,

"On foot of representations received from residents in Dergview about access difficulties to homes being experienced by wheelchair users, I convened a joint site meeting with Roads Service and Housing Executive officials back in July to discuss how the problems could be overcome.

"As a Roads Service has now installed a small ramp at to the rear of one row of houses with the Housing Executive committing to develop a staggered ramp to the rear of another row which hopefully will be constructed in the near future.

"Hopefully the combined work by both statutory agencies will help improve wheelchair access to homes in the area.
