Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has welcomed the news that Carlisle Road is to receive over a quarter of a million pounds facelift
He was commenting after the Social Development Minister Mervyn Storey announced that Carlisle Road in Derry is to get a £268,000 facelift.
“This is good news for the businesses along Carlisle Road and residents who live in the surrounding streets. We have seen how schemes in other parts of the city have revitalised entire areas such as the Guildhall Square and Waterloo Place.
This facelift will see new paving, enhancements to the street lights and the carriageway resurfaced on what is the gateway from Craigavon Bridge into our city centre.
