Proposals for a new-look town centre in Maghera are under development in a public realm scheme valued at £2.5M.
Mid Ulster District Council is holding an information session at Maghera Leisure Centre on Wednesday 27 November 2019 from 2pm-8pm. The drop in session will display the updated preliminary proposals based on previous feedback from businesses and the general public. The designs will be on display at the leisure centre from Monday 11 November.
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 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 preliminary proposals also seek to address vehicle congestion and queuing and substandard 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 part of upper Main Street.
