Pedestrian traffic lights in Muff are expected to be in place by the New Year, it has been confirmed.
Civil works have already begun in order to construct the long-awaited crossing in the busy border village and new street lights have been erected.
Sinn Fein County Councillor Jack Murray met with residents in Muff yesterday.
He told the Journal that traffic lights are due to be installed on newly-erected poles before the New Year and a crossing will also be laid out on the road itself.
Colr. Murray said the pedestrian lights would be a “constant green,” for motorists, turning red when pedestrians activated the crossing button.
Colr. Murray welcomed the latest development, pointing out how residents have been campaigning for the facility for 10 years.
The lights will cost in the region of 25,000 euro to complete.
