Calls for work to carried out on dangerous footpath in Ballybofey

A Stranorlar Councillor has called for work to be carried out on a dangerous footpath for over concerns that someone could be seriously injured or killed.

Cora Harvey has already raised her concerns with Council engineers for safety improvement works on the Trusk Road Footpath in Ballybofey.

Cllr Cora Harvey says the stretch of road between Supervalu and the Weaver’s Estate is narrow and dangerous for pedestrians.

The road is used frequently by walkers and Councillor Harvey believes it is only a matter of time before somebody is seriously injured or worse.

She says that residents in the area have been calling on the Council to lay a footpath on this road for the past ten years and while progress has been made, it has been painfully slow and many are frustrated and angry with the lack of action.

Councillor Harvey said it was extremely frustrating to see, that despite having secured the necessary funding, works have not started on this footpath, let alone be completed.

Cllr Harvey has called on Donegal County Council to take immediate compulsory action to secure the land deal and complete the works as a matter of priority for the benefit of all those that use this road.
