Partial carpark closures as Council continues re-surfacing works

22 September 2023

Derry City and Strabane District Council is continuing its commitment to resurface a number of busy carparks within the council area.

Earlier this year, Council agreed to re-surface four car parks across Derry, Strabane and the wider district.

These were Albert Street in Castlederg, Market Square in Claudy, Shantallow Health Centre on Racecourse Road and Townhall Street in Newtownstewart.

The aim of the project is to provide improvements to the surface and introduce a user-friendly layout with additional disabled bays, the introduction of parent and child parking bays and the installation of wider user-friendly bays.

Work has already been completed at Shantallow Health Centre Car Park, with the work continuing in Castlederg and Newtownstewart over the next three weeks.

Works in Albert Street Car park, Castlederg are expected to take place between Monday 25th September to Sunday 1st October inclusive.

In the Townhall Car Park, Newtownstewart are expected to commence on Monday 2nd October and last until Friday 13th October inclusive.

A spokesperson for Derry City and Strabane District Council apologised for any inconvenience caused during the works, but said they were looking forward to creating improvements for local communities across the city and district:

“The public are asked to note that during the resurfacing works partial closures will operate within the car park and will create a level of disruption and a reduction in availability. 

“All businesses within the vicinity of the car parks will remain open and accessible to the public."
