€23m for cross–border greenways 13 December 2016

Cross–border greenways: EU pledges €23m (via BBC News)

 

greenways

 

The EU has pledged more than 23m euros (£19.5m) to create almost 80 kms (50 miles) of new greenway linking towns and cities on either side of the Irish border.

Funding will go to new projects connecting Newry with Carlingford and Londonderry and Strabane with Donegal.

The second phase of the Ulster Canal Greenway will also benefit.

It is hoped the projects will cut car journeys and create sustainable travel routes for cyclists and pedestrians.

Gina McIntyre of the Special EU Programmes Body said teach of the projects would “substantially increase the quality and quantity of greenway offering on both sides of the border”.

The Department for Infrastructure in Northern Ireland and Ireland’s Department of Transport will match fund the EU monies.

Northern Ireland’s Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard said the EU funding “demonstrates commitment to further develop sustainable transport options here”.

“The benefits of developing greenways go well beyond transport. The health, economic, environmental and social impacts help enhance the quality of life for users”.

Mr Hazzard said the new routes would complement Northern Ireland’s five existing greenways that span around 600 miles.
