McCann successfully lobbies for Gate on Trillick Play Park

Published: 7 April, 2014

West Tyrone Sinn Féin Representative Stephen McCann has commended Omagh District Council for confirming they will install a gate at the entrance to Trillick Play Park in the coming weeks.

Mr McCann said,

"I have been contacted by a number of concerned parents in Trillick, alarmed that there was no gate on the local play park, I have worked with the council to ensure a speedy resolution to this road safety issue and I commend their efficiency.

"The play park is beside the Girgadis road and parents feared that without a gate, a child could easily walk onto the road and into the path of oncoming traffic. I contacted Kevin O'Gara, head of the Council's Technical Services to raise these concerns and he has confirmed that a gate will be installed as a matter of urgency.

"Simple measures like this will make this children's play area much safer, helping prevent any unnecessary accidents and tragedies in our area."
