ABP paves the way for Buncrana road works

An Bord Pleanala has given Buncrana Town Council the go ahead to proceed with works at the Aghilly Road. Part of the land will have to be secured through a Compulsory Purchase Order.

Buncrana Town Councillor Ciaran McLaughlin says no elected representative or public official likes having to use a CPO, but sadly in this case, it was absolutely required.

He says the Aghilly Road is treacherous for pedestrians and the straightening of the road with footpaths and lighting is a must. The priority now, he says, is to secure funding to aquire the land and proceed with the works............
