The prompt action by DfI Roads to address the flooded walkway serving the busy Waterside retail parks at Lisnagelvinin the Waterside area of Derry has been welcomed by SDLP councillor for the area, Martin Reilly. He said: “This tunnel provides a safe way for pedestrian shoppers to visit both of the retail parks at Lisnagelvin. The heavy hail and rain on Saturday afternoon led to this busy walkway tunnel being flooded leaving shoppers unable to walk back through it with their groceries and other items. "I also noticed parents with prams having to find an alternative way back to their car. "Thankfully, the NI Direct Flooding Helpline was able to assist and get DfI Roads personnel out to clear the drains and remove the blockages. Such prompt action was particularly welcome on a Saturday afternoon which would be the busiest day for these nearby businesses.”
