Lower Bann infrastructure project will help improve access to River Bann – Bateson

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin Mayor Sean Bateson has said that the Lower Bann infrastructure project will help improve access for recreational and holiday users and boost tourism in the area.

Cllr Bateson said:

“The development of the £150,000 Lower Bann Infrastructure Project part funded by council would help improve the River Bann as a resource for local communities and visitors.

“It also shows that Causeway Coast and Glens council recognises the potential of outdoor recreation and the benefits it would have to the area in terms of tourism.

“Some of the improvements would see the installation of canoe steps at Camus to improve access to the waterway, improvements to the small car park and installation of canoe steps on the up-stream of the Agivey Bridge and the extension of pontoon facilities at the Marina at Drumaheglis Holiday and Leisure Park to attract and facilitate private sector operators to use the Lower Bann for water-based holiday and leisure activities.

“The development of a ‘Blueway’ concept would raise the profile of the River Bann for activities on and off the water.

“I was pleased to propose that the Lower Bann infrastructure project goes to stage 1 of the capital works process and this project will help improve access to and from the water for recreational and holiday users boosting tourism in the Causeway Coast and Glens area.”
