Cycleway through Ballinasloe & East Galway!
The 2nd public consultation report has been published on the website with a review of input from submissions across all the 5 routes - 11,600 Submissions... woohoo well done
Green Route No.1 &
Blue Route No.3 through Ballinasloe got a lot of positive comments - thank you to so many families, clubs, businesses who have put in submissions especially during lockdown!!! Well done to Athlone Ballinasloe Greenway team with a petition with over 2,000 signatures and we had over 200 people on public zoom meetings with the project team! It all counts.
Got a chance to talk to Michael Conroy a while back from the Galway to Athlone Cycleway Team. Local from Cappataggle and you might recognise him from working in Tesco but then back to study in AIT and out he came with an engineering qualification and back working close to home in Ballinasloe!
Consensus is key and landowner consultation is still taking place so do link in with Michael in the Greenway Office in town who is specifically looking at the area around Ballinasloe. firstname.lastname@example.org or call (091) 50926
Still a bit more time to wait... the decision on a final route corridor will be in 3-4 months time so perhaps Q4/ November timeframe. A Cycleway will transform our towns and villages - imagine safe places for families to walk & cycle.
