Repairs being made to collapsed wall in Glenowen following fears for children's safety

Repairs are being made to a collapsed wall in Glenowen at Hollyhall Road following worries for the safety of children in the area. Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell said: “Last week a number of residents from Glenowen contacted me concerned about the collapse of the boundary wall on the Hollyhall Road. This is a very dangerous situation as the children of the area play on the green space beside it. “I have spent the last number of days talking to statutory agencies to try and find out who has ownership of the wall. This has proved to be a difficult process as you find in such circumstances . “Thankfully Apex Housing Association in the interim have said they have put out a tender for a contractor to fix the wall and do a health and safety check on the rest of the wall “This work should start early next week. And in the meantime I will endeavour to try and resolve ownership of the wall. "I would urge motorists using the Hollyhall Road to show extra vigilance whilst this repair work is taking place."
