The main thoroughfares of the Twin Towns of Ballybofey and Stranorlar are in line for a major facelift.
The news has been welcomed by local county councillor Patrick McGowan.
Cllr McGowan said he has received confirmation that investigation works are just the beginning to getting the street resurfaced in conjunction with new sewerage line and any other services that need replacing prior to laying a new pavement.
Cllr McGowan said the Ballybofey and Stranorlar street surface is in a dreadful condition.
“The amount of large articulated lorries and other heavy traffic using this road would not be experienced by other large towns or they would be by-passed,” he said.
He said councillors and council officials are and will continue to look for a definite commitment from the TII / NRA that the Main Street surface will be re-laid next year .
And he added “The response this week and the work on the ground would give one reason to hope this is the case but we will have to keep the pressure on the TII HQ in Dublin and our Oireachtas members to see this job is included in the TII capital works in 2018 said Cllr McGowan.
