Cllr McGlinchey said he has now been informed that work to address the safety issues raised will be completed before the end of April.
"I welcome the response from the Department for Infrastructure that the lighting in Holmlea Park, Dungiven, does not indeed comply with current standards and cannot be retrofitted due the heights and spacing of the columns, but instead will be entirely replaced by new street lighting installation."
He added: The level of lighting has been substandard for some time causing concerns among residents and I am also delighted with the proposed timescale which will see work commence before the end of this financial year."
