Have your say on Strabane Pedestrian Bridge

19 February 2020

Derry City and Strabane District Council are urging the public and sports clubs to give their feedback online on the impact of the Strabane Pedestrian / Cycle Bridge project.

The bridge is one of the Council’s major capital investment projects of recent years and provides a crucial missing link for pedestrians and cyclists between the residential areas and schools south of the river and Strabane centre to the north.
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Michaela Boyle, urged users to complete the bridge user survey to allow Council to guage the impact of the project.
“The Strabane Pedestrian / Cycle Bridge was built to enhance community cohesion and provide a safer crossing point for pedestrians and cyclists by improving access to key health and leisure services.
“The bridge has a 95 metre span over the River Mourne and links the communities of Ballycolman and Meetinghouse Street.
“We would be grateful if users could spend a few moments to complete the questionnaire to measure if the project has improved pedestrian and cycle connectivity and if there are any ways the service could be improved.”
The survey has been split into a general users and club users section, accessible at the following links.
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday February 26th 2020.
