Councillor concerned over Derry Peace Bridge safety

A Derry councillor is expressing concern at the number of people crossing the Foyle Expressway in busy traffic to get to the new Peace Bridge.

Councillor Colly Kelly says since the Peace Bridge opened two weeks ago the area in around the entrance at the Foyle Expressway  has been extremely busy with thousands of people visiting there on a daily basis.

However, he says a  number of people haven't been using the pedestrian crossings at the back of the Guildhall and at Water Street to get to the bridge, and there have already ben a number of near misses.

Cllr Kelly says while it may take a little longer to use the pedestrian crossing, it's important that people do so
