Letterkenny Town Council is calling for repair work to be carried out on the footpath from Ballymacool Terrace towards the Aura Leisure Centre as a matter of urgency.
The road is under county council control, and has been substantially upgraded. However, the footpath is currently in a very poor state.
Cllr Tom Crossan says the council is to be commended on the work it's done for traffic, now it's time to do the same for people.
Meanwhile, the council is to erect signs on the Rockhill Road warning motorists to be on the look out for joggers and walkers, many of whom use that road on a regular basis.
