Newtowncunningham is to get a €1m facelift which will make the village a safer place.
Work on an overhaul of the town’s Main Street begins next Monday.
It will involve the widening of footpaths as well as the construction of six raised crossings and a new signal crossing at Scoil Colmcille.
The finding for the project has come from a number of sources including the National Transport Authority, the Greener Schools Programme and Donegal County Council.
Local county councillor Paul Canning says he is delighted that work is finally due to begin on making Newtowncunningham a safer place to live.
“I’m very pleased that work will start on Monday and I’ve no doubt these improvements will make Newtowncunningham a safer place.
“The village has such a long Main Street that it is so important that children and adults have safe places to cross.
“This has been in the pipeline for a long time and I’m glad it is now becoming a reality,” he said.Tags:
