£380,000 announced by Communities Minister Paul Givan, to upgrade the surrounding St Eugene’s Cathedral in Londonderry.

The Department for Communities will be investing £380,000 to upgrade the footbaths surrounding the Grade B+ listed

The works will include the upgrade of 2,214 sq m of footways.

Infirmary Road, Francis Street, Creggan Street and upper Great James will all be upgraded with grey granite stone, to provide a high quality finish. New pedestrian railings will also be installed and the paving on Creggan Hill will be ugraded. The works come following the recent £5M Brooke Park Regeneration Project, which will be complimented well by the new investment.

Minister Givan said: “I am delighted to announce my Department’s funding in this historic conservation area of Londonderry. The new high quality paving will complement the recently renovated Brooke Park as well as public realm works carried out by my Department in nearby streets.

“Many towns and cities have recently benefited from regeneration projects like this and I look forward to seeing a similar transformation in this part of the city, making it a more attractive, welcoming place to live, work and visit.”

The project is funded by the Department for Communities and will be delivered by TransportNI, where the work will be carried out by a Measured Term Contractor.

The scheme is expected to commence in January and be finished by the end of March 2017.
