Sinn Féin councillor Brenda Chivers has called on NIES to repair damaged footpaths in the Roe Valley Country Park which is a major tourist attraction in the area.

Colr Chivers said: “I have been contacted by many regular users of the park who have reported that walkers, runners and cyclists are ignoring the barriers and no entry signs currently in place to stop the public entering the damaged footpaths.”

“The Roe Valley Country Park is a major tourist attraction and frequented by many locals for different purposes and I would hope that the resources will be put in place to repair the damage done to the two paths. It is in the public’s health and safety interests that this problem is solved.”

She added “I have raised the issue with Limavady Borough Council and requested a letter be sent to NIES who are responsible for the upkeep of the park and I hope this issue will be fixed as soon as possible.”
