Mid Ulster councillor Joe O’Neill has welcomed the replacement street lights on Coalisland’s Stewartstown Road after a hard fought battle with TransportNI.

The Sinn Fein man said: “These lights will replace the old ones that are damaged and have seen better days. I would like to thank former Cllr Dessie Donnelly who fought hard at council to get these lights replaced and lobbied hard with Transport NI to get this on the schedule.

I would like to thank Transport NI and hope to see this work completed as soon as possible - Cllr Joe O’Neill

“The new lights will be a great benefit to local residents and also this area is popular for people out walking so these new lights will be welcome by all. I would like to thank Transport NI and hope to see this work completed as soon as possible.”
