Allocation of Funds for Cavan Railway Greenway and Sligo/Leitrim & Northern Counties Railway Greenway a significant step – Feeley

The allocation of € 500,000 to bring plans for the development of a 75km greenway from Blacklion to Sligo Town through the Statutory Process and of € 175,000 to progress route options for a 26km greenway from the Ulster Canal north of Castle Saunderson to link with the Cavan-Leitrim Greenway at Belturbet are two significant steps forward.
‘The development of a greenway network in the region will link key tourist attractions and provide an important local amenity. The allocations will move these two proposals forward significantly and get them ready for construction. These allocations move the proposals from good ideas to implementable projects and will ready them for construction.’
‘Within a short time these two announcements are a demonstration of a more positive disposition to Rural Ireland from the New Government and I look forward to this funding leading to funding for the construction stage.’
