It will form a vital part of the redevelopment of Strabane town.
Chairman of Strabane District Council, Councillor Ruairi McHugh said I am delighted that this landmark project is going ahead and with the co-operation of Council, funders and the local community there will now be significant opportunity for regeneration within Strabane town.
Announcing the funding, Minister McCausland said: I am pleased that my Department is working with Strabane District Council, Strabane Town Forum and Strabane Chamber of Commerce to bring forward this important project.
I am confident that this project, together with the recently announced Festive Lighting scheme and the completed and planned public realm improvement works, will make a significant contribution to securing the future of Strabane town centre.
The site is to the north of strabane town
centre and close to the a5 off tullacor heights.
Asphalt resurfacing is being laid on a section of Spout Road from a location 400 metres east of Strabane town
boundary for a distance of 1.
The award of funding to this project is a practical demonstration of the Department s ongoing commitment to the regeneration of Strabane and the implementation of the Strabane Town
Centre Master Plan which was published some two years ago.
