Updated Preliminary Proposals for £2.5M Maghera Public Realm
Mid Ulster District Council held an information session on 26th June 2019 to display updated preliminary proposals for a proposed £2.5M public realm scheme in Maghera and the preliminary proposals are now available for further consideration.
The Council is seeking feedback on the evolving proposals that plan to transform the look of the town centre with new paving, street lighting, planting and street furniture, as well as to address substandard footpath widths, poor pedestrian access and traffic flow issues.

The proposed public realm scheme extends the length of 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.
The preliminary proposals also seek to address vehicle congestion and queuing and limited on-street parking in the narrow Main Street area of the town. The preliminary proposals that have been identified following detailed traffic modelling include the creation of a one-way system where traffic flows in one direction north on upper Main Street.
