Paul Givan unveils £3.7m funding to 'further enhance' Lisburn

Communities minister Paul Givan has announced a facelift for Lisburn.

The Lagan Valley MLA said a £3.7 million project would upgrade footpaths, lighting and street furniture.

The Department for Communities is investing approximately £2 million in this project with Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council investing a further £1.7m.

The Lisburn Linkages project will include Bridge Street, Antrim Street, Railway Street, Castle Street, Seymour Street, Bachelor's Walk and Market Place.

Mr Givan stated: "I am delighted that the Council and the Department for Communities are again working together to further enhance Lisburn city centre.

"The success of the earlier phases of work in Lisburn City is clear for all to see, so to have the opportunity now to undertake more work within the city centre is a real boost.

"Lisburn City has a lot to offer tourists, visitors and shoppers and this investment will help to make Lisburn a more attractive destination for everyone to enjoy."

Doran HMK JV has been appointed to manage the project on behalf of the Council. Works are expected to commence this summer and complete in 2018.
