Derry MLA calls on Council to repair lights on 'pitch black' Waterside greenway

Mark H Durkan
A Derry MLA has urged Derry City and Strabane District Council to ensure lights are repaired on the Waterside Greenway. SDLP MLA Mark H Durkan said the stretch from the Foyle Bridge to St Columb's Park is currently unsafe due to broken street lamps.
'' We are very lucky to have such fantastic green infrastructure in and around Derry and the next few years should see even further improvements in this regard with the extension of the Greenway out to Strathfoyle as well as new cross-border routes to Muff and Buncrana," said Mr Durkan.
"It is important that the greenways we do have are maintained properly to maximise the number of people who use them to run,walk or cycle either for leisure or just to get from A to B.
"Currently the lights from Foyle  Bridge to Start Columb's Park  along Waterside Greenway are not working. This renders that stretch almost pitch dark and this is causing users risk of injury and fear of attack.
"I have contacted Council about this issue and it will hopefully be resolved very soon.''
