SINN FÉIN MEET OFFICIALS REGARDING FOYLE ROAD FLOODING

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan and Councillor Patricia Logue have  met with DFI and NI Water officials  to raise issues of persistent flooding on the Foyle Road.

The Foyle MLA said; “Following on from queries raised with the Minister, we met with local officials to raise the issues and discuss plans going forward, we were pleased to hear the Department for Infrastructure & NI Water will be conducting an onsite investigation into the drainage and sewage system. 

“There have been repeated flooding incidents in the Foyle Road area for a number of years and the issues have never been properly resolved, since 2018 alone there have been nine incidents. 

“Local residents deserve better than this and we will continue to work with local officials and the Minister to ensure that a plan is developed to prevent further flooding incidents in the area”.
