Tunnel in the pipeline thumbnailAn application has been lodged with planners for a pedestrian underpass at local beauty spot, the Dark Hedges.

THE provision of a pedestrian underpass at the Dark Hedges has moved a step closer after a planning application was submitted to Causeway Coast and Glens Council. Describing the news as "positive", the Chair of the Dark Hedges Preservation Trust, Mr Mervyn Storey MLA said: "I welcome any proposal which will lead to an overall solution to all the issues at the Dark Hedges and I think this application is part of that."
The pedestrian tunnel plan, exclusively revealed by the Chronicle back in October, would allow safe passage of tourists from the Hedges Hotel car park to the iconic trees, made world famous by the hit TV show, Game of Thrones.
