Muff - Derry greenway 08.04.21

DONEGAL County Council has published the tender for the Muff part of the Muff-Derry greenway. The 2.3km section, of an overall 10km route, will be delivered under the auspices of the cross-border North West Greenway Network. Works will include: segregated infrastructure, the widening of existing footpaths on the R238, new and upgraded lighting, landscaping, drainage works and the provision of bicycle parking facilities at Muff Community Park.
Welcoming the announcement, the Communications Officer for the North West Greenway Network, Rónán Gallagher, said, "this project has been developed over three years and it is fantastic that this tender has now been issued. With a little bit of luck, construction will commence by summer."
He continued, "our goal is to encourage modal shift while reducing carbon emissions. This will provide a crucial new artery linking Muff to Derry City as well as a fantastic amenity for people living in the village."
The planning application for the Bridgend to Buncrana section of the Buncrana-Derry greenway is due to be lodged later this year. Further details on the North West Greenway Network are available at www.nwgreenway.com .
