Have your say on new Muff - Derry greenway 14.05.18

PEOPLE are being asked for their opinions on the best routes for a proposed new greenway linking Muff and Derry.
Donegal County Council and Derry City and Strabane District Council are seeking the public's views on a series of route options being appraised for the North West Greenway Network.
Two public consultation days will be held to facilitate this.
A greenway is a dedicated cycling and walking route, either off road (traffic free) or on road within part of the verge or footway, but segregated from vehicular traffic.
The Muff to Derry section is known as Route 2 and is among three routes being developed as part of the North West Greenway Network. On completion, the three routes will deliver 46.5 km of new cross-border greenway that will help reduce carbon emissions by encouraging commuters to leave their cars at home. The 18 million project is to be part-funded by EU money.
Programme manager Jonathan Henderson said: "We would strongly encourage everybody to get involved and feed into the process as much as possible in order to contribute to shaping and informing development in their region."
The public consultation days will take place on Wednesday, May 23, in Hollybush Primary School, Culmore, Derry from 2pm to 8pm and the following day in Muff Community Hall from 2pm to 8pm.
Those unable to attend can have their say via Twitter @nwgreenway and Facebook @nwgreenway.

The proposed North West routes are as follows:
Route 1: Derry via Pennyburn and Bridgend border crossing to Buncrana/Letterkenny via Tooban junction 32.5km (this includes linking Inch Nature Reserve to Newtowncunnigham)
Route 2: Muff village to Derry via Culmore and Muff border crossing and Culmore 10.5km
Route 3: Strabane to Lifford via Lifford Bridge 3.5km.
