Published: 12 February, 2019

Sinn Féin representatives Glenn Campbell and Ann-Marie Donnelly have welcomed clarification from DfI Roads regarding planning works on St Dympna's Road, Dromore. In correspondence shared with Cllr Campbell, a DfI Roads official clarified the extent of the work currently planned for St Dympna's Road and expected to be completed in February.

Speaking on the issue Cllr Campbell said:

"I have been working alongside party colleague Ann-Marie Donnelly over the past few weeks in highlighting the poor state of St Dympna's Road with DfI Roads. I was pleased to be informed of planned works at this location, however there was a few issues which required clarification and I am pleased to receive that from DFI Roads.

"They have informed me that in addition to the resurfacing work between Church Brae houses and the speed limit signs they also plan to carry out much needed repair work to the footpath leading to the old graveyard.

Welcoming the planned works Sinn Féin Representative Ann-Marie Donnelly said:

"The news that the footpath will be repaired will come as a relief to local residents and those who visit the old graveyard. The footpath had been raised as an issue of concern by residents of St. Dympna's Road and the town, who frequently walk the road. Whilst the resurfacing works is also welcome, I would like to see it extended beyond the 30-mph zone, as there is much more remedial work needed on this particular road.CRÍOCH
