Work is beginning today on the next phase of the new pedestrian and cycle bridge in Strabane, with the project now at assembly stage.

The mast components for the bridge will arrive on site today.

The council says welding work on the mast is expected to continue until the beginning of next month, with the erection of the bridge deck components due to start in mid-June.

Weather permitting, this work is scheduled for completion by the end of June.

The council says it is aware of the concerns of residents living in close proximity to the works, and it will continue to keep the community informed of progress at the site, and any works which may impact on the area. Anyone with any queries about the works should contact the council directly.

The new pedestrian and cycle bridge will have a 95 metre span over the River Mourne, and the council says it will significantly improve the infrastructure in the Strabane area from its completion in early July.

The landmark will link the two communities of Ballycolman and Meetinghouse Street.
