Lighting work to start at Creebridge

After a long campaign, the council will start work on istalling lighting the cycle path between the Sparling Bridge and Masonfield, Minnigaff on Monday, August 4.

Mid Galloway councillor Alistair Geddes said: “It’s taken a long time to get this scheme approved and the lighting provided, but it now looks as though we’re on the home straight!

“I’d like to place on record my appreciation of the support which I’ve received in having these proposals developed, not only from Cree Valley Community Council and individual constituents but also from my two Mid-Galloway colleagues, Jim McColm and Graham Nicol.

“It’s been a good example of teamwork which should be of benefit to those using the footpath.”
