Official Opening of Cavan Town Urban Greenway marks significant improvement for local community – Feeley

Fianna Fáil County Councillor, John Paul Feeley has welcomed the official opening of the Cavan Town Urban Greenway marking the completion of a significant investment by Cavan County Council through the Out-Door Recreation Infrastructure Scheme (ORIS).
Over the last number of years I have worked closely with residents in the Carrickane area to secure improvements in terms of footpaths, public lighting and other works for this area of Cavan Town. Officials of Cavan County Council, taking on board these concerns have insured that there has been an ongoing programme of improvement, installing an upgrading footpaths and road surfaces and the widening of Drumlark Bridge to provide footpath has now created a link from the Old Butlersbridge Road, past Loreto College to the Greenway and back throught the grounds of Cavan General Hospital to the Town.
This year the footpath has also been completed around the junction of Golf Links Road and Loreto Road which completes another important piece of the jig-saw.
Phase 1 of the Urban Greenway has created not just a safe area of those living locally but has provided a very beneficial amenity for the wider community.
As work progressing on the planning of Phase 2 of the Greenway, the creation of link up to Keadue Lane and the feasibility study on the extension of the Greenway to Butlersbridge and onwards to Cloverhill, Castlesauderson and linking back to Belturbet and Ballyconnell as part of the Cavan Leitrim Railway Greenway this project will form part of a much larger network of regional importance.
