Local improvements are being sought to make walking safer for residents of Ramelton.
Issues with street lighting and footpaths in the town were raised with Donegal County Council this week.
Councillor John O’Donnell called for lighting to be installed along the Shore Road as a matter of urgency.
The council is set to assess the location and consider it for inclusion in a priority list for funding.
A survey on footpath safety is also being sought for Ramelton.
Cllr Ian McGarvey told the Letterkenny-Milford MD this week that the town should be inspected to ensure adequate support is in place for walkers.
He added that improvements were not only for locals, as they could attract people from other towns to visit Ramelton.
In response, the council said that an application has been submitted to the National Transport Authority for additional future Active Travel funding within Ramelton town.
In the last number of years sections of footpaths have been replaced on Rectory Road, Tank Brae, Chapel Road, Church Street, Castle Street and Back Road through the Footpath and Public Lighting Programme, CIS and Active Travel Schemes.
Further schemes on the Ballyarr Road, Bank Terrance and the Mall are programmed to be completed in 2020.Tags:
