Improved Maghera Public Realm Works Unveiled

Construction News Image
An improved programme of public realm works in Maghera has been revealed.

The £2.5 million scheme will see improvements delivered along Main Street, taking in parts of Coleraine Road, Station Road, Meeting House Avenue, Tirkane Road, Church Street, Glen Road, Hall Street, Bank Square and St Lurach's Road.

Improvements will include new paving, street lighting, planting and street furniture, as well as upgrades to address substandard footpath widths, poor pedestrian access and traffic flow issues. The scheme will also look to address vehicle congestion and queuing and substandard on-street parking in the narrow Main Street area of the town.

These preliminary proposals will go on public display at an information session later this month.

Mid Ulster District Council will host the event at Maghera Leisure Centre from 2pm-8pm on Wednesday 27 November. The designs will be on display at the leisure centre from Monday 11 November.


These proposals have been identified following detailed traffic modelling including the creation of a one-way system where traffic flows in one direction north on part of upper Main Street.


Chair of the Council, Councillor Martin Kearney said: "The proposed public realm scheme in Maghera represents an investment of £2.5m and will have a significant, positive impact on the town centre, its vitality and its accessibility in terms of traffic and parking. The updated designs are based on previous feedback received from businesses and residents so the information session provides the public the opportunity to view these for themselves, and to feedback their opinions on the new proposals for the scheme."
