ROBIN SWANN MLA, the UUP North Antrim Assemblyman has said he is “very pleased” that a campaign to secure a much-needed footpath along the Knock Road in Dervock is to be completed.

Assemblyman Swann confirmed victory in the campaign following a written question to the Sinn Fein Minister for Infrastructure. Mr Swann had asked the Minister for an update on the delivery of the footpath. Responding, the Minister said: “I am pleased to inform you that my Department’s TransportNI has developed a scheme to provide approximately 200m of footway extending from the current provision on Knock Road towards Lisconnan Road. It is anticipated that this footway will be completed within the next couple of months.”

Mr Swann added: “I am delighted the Minister has given approval to the campaign and that work has already commenced. Upon completion, it will boost road safety.”
