Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy has welcomed the news that the new traffic lights at Bradleys Pass will be operational this weekend.
The campaign for the lights has involved all political parties, community groups and residents.
Councillor Duffy said: “There will be great relief in the local community to learn of the news that the lights will finally become operational this weekend.
“The Glengalliagh Road is a very busy road for both motorists and pedestrians. Over the last number of years there have been a lot of accidents at its junction with Bradley’s Pass.”
