Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed the news that work on a number of issues is to take place in the greater Garden City area of Derry including new footpaths and trees getting cut back.
Councillor Cooper said
The footpaths in Garden City have been neglected for a very long time. I contacted DRD Roads Service away back in November 2012 to see if they could carry out an inspection on the state of the footpaths.
So I am pleased that the area from the junction of Culmore Road to Ballynasilloe Avenue is now getting a new footpath. And trees at rear of properties in Ballynasilloe Ave are also getting cut back. It’s an issue I have been lobbying on now for some months. I relayed the concerns from residents and asked that a solution could be found to sort this out as speedily as possible.
