West Tyrone Sinn Féin -- Building an Ireland of Equals

Timely Completion of Priest's Lane Bus Shelter 'welcomed' in Castlederg

Published: 1 September, 2015

Derg Sinn Féin Councillor Ruairí Mc Hugh has welcomed the construction of a new bus shelter by Derry City and Strabane District Council at Priest's Lane in Castlederg, He said

" The need for this shelter was first brought to my attention by concerned parents of pupils who were travelling to schools in Strabane, and in particular Holy Cross school, who were being collected and dropped off at Priest Lane in all types of weather because of safety concerns around the amount of traffic and students utilising the shelter at John Street.

' Obviously this was an unacceptable situation and having secured Council support for the location of a new shelter following a site meeting with myself and other council officials, it is to be welcomed that it is now completed in time for the new school year" - ends
