Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport Michael Ring has announced the sanctioning of €155,000 for a cycling and walking infrastructure on the Northern Greenway, a 2.3km walk and cycle route linking Westport town centre to Pinewoods.
“I am delighted to announce this funding,” Minister Ring said. “This is a further link to the Greenway. It will be a great amenity for the town. This is the start of connecting many other areas of the town to the Greenway.
“The Greenway has been a wonderful success. Thousands upon thousands of people have visited and travelled the Greenway this year. Every place I go, either in Ireland or abroad, people are talking about the Greenway. It is a great infrastructure for tourism and leisure. I am delighted that this route will be another asset to the Greenway.”
