Much needed resurfacing work is shortly to get underway at Ballymaguigan.
Welcoming the news SDLP MLA Patsy McGlone said a number of local residents had been in touch with him over the last few months regarding the poor condition of the Shore Road.
As a result, the Mid Ulster MLA made representations to Transport NI urging them to carry out improvements as a matter of urgency.
“Transport NI have confirmed that they have already started to raise the footway between the school and Barrack Road and will be resurfacing here in a few weeks’ time,” he said.
“They are also hoping to carry out some patching on the other side of the school as well as resurfacing O’Neill Park during the on-going work.”
Mr McGlone thanked thank Transport NI for their assistance in getting the work scheduled.
