I welcome confirmation from Firmus that they have agreed to install a gas pipeline along Lower Culmore Road during 2015 as a result of a long lobby from myself.
Early in the New Year I will be meeting with their staff to discuss the process and timelines around them connecting the pipeline into the various residential areas.
This confirmation should see a new gas supply to the likes of Kingsfort Park, Garden City, Troy Park, Gleneagles and Mount Pleasant.
This is great news for residents who have been requesting a gas connection for many years.
I will be in contact with each resident over the next few months as I receive further information from Firmus.
