Sinn Féin Cllr Catherine Nelson has thanked the Department for Infrastructure for working with her to assess an area in Ardowen for dropped kerbs.

She said:“Local residents raised this need with me with a view to making the paths more accessible to the elderly and those using wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

“I have been working alongside DfI and am delighted that, following an on site assessment, they have agreed to lower a number of kerbs as soon as resource becomes available.
