Muff - Derry
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
