Duffy calls 'permanent solution' to 'persistent flooding' on Racecourse Road

The Department of Infrastructure is being called on to find a "permanent solution to the persistent flooding" issue at the junction of Alder Road and Racecourse Road on the outskirts of Derry. The call comes from Sinn Fein Councillor Sandra Duffy who said flooding at the "busy road junction" (pictured) occurred on a regular basis whenever there was "a bout" of heavy rain. She added: "This is a busy road, used by local traffic going to and from Muff in Donegal. It is only a matter of time before we are dealing with an accident as a result of this flooding. "Once again at the weekend I had to contact the Department to get workers out to deal with this persistent flooding." Cllr Duffy concluded: "I am calling on the Department to find a permanent solution to this problem rather than wasting resources on continuous emergency call-outs every time we have a heavy downpour".
