Colr. Nicholl said the move to install new bus shelters in the locations were as a result of meeting with a number of agencies.

Colr. Nicholl said: “I am delighted that the Aghnaloo and Ballykelly areas will receive new bus shelters as a result of my meetings with Translink, the PSNI and Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council.

“These will mostly cater for people in Lilac Avenue in Aghanloo, and Riverview and the ex-army houses in Ballykelly.”

Colr. Nicholl said local people in both areas had been lobbying for shelters.

“Locals in Aghnaloo, especially, have for a long time been calling for a bus shelter and I am pleased to finally help deliver this for the community. This issue was raised with myself and Sinn Féin colleagues in a meeting on behalf of residents,” said Colr. Nicholl, adding: “The timing is great. They will be operational for the new school year.”
