Local Member of Parliament Carla Lockhart has welcomed the announcement from the Department for Infrastructure that a £125,000 street lighting improvement scheme has been approved for Lurgan Town Centre.
Carla Lockhart said:
“This is a very welcome investment and will see the installation of LED street lighting across Lurgan town centre. Not only will this modernise the street lighting infrastructure in the town, but it will also see our street lighting become more energy efficient. That is good news for the ratepayer but also the environment.
This investment is significant, and it is inevitable that some disruption to the town centre will occur. I am grateful to the Department that they have recognised the need to minimise disruption for traders and for those visiting the town centre to shop and conduct business.”
Alderman Stephen Moutray added:
“Modernisation of town centres is vital to enhancing the experience of those who shop, work and live in our town centres and this will certainly assist in the transformation of Lurgan.
The DUP will continue to press the NI Executive Departments and local Council for further such investment in Lurgan and other towns and villages in the area.”
