Carn footpaths in ‘poor state’
Local election candidate Martin McDermott claims the current ‘poor state’ of footpaths in Carn presents a hazard risk for pedestrians.
“Businesses and residents have raised concerns about the footpaths in the past but they currently remain in serious need of repair,” he said.
The Fianna Fáil candidate added: “The footpaths are badly cracked and broken causing divots and concrete that juts out; leaving an uneven walking surface. My main concern is that this is an accident waiting to happen as someone is going to trip and be seriously injured.”
“The footpaths in Carn must be addressed. From the Moss Road to the New Road and right through the town, there are a number of places where this need for repair can be seen. It would be cost-effective for the council to address this now.”
“I would point to the work that has recently been carried out in Buncrana. This is exactly what Carn needs too. The works there have improved the look of the town and this has made it more attractive for shoppers and tourists alike,” McDermott added.
