Public Consultation taking place on Monday 29 May to Friday 23 June 2023.
The Sligo Greenway Public Consultation
The Sligo Greenway – (Collooney to Bellaghy)
Public Consultation No. 1
Sligo County Council through the Sligo Regional Design Office are in the early stages of planning for a Greenway project entitled, ‘The Sligo Greenway’ from Collooney to Bellaghy. This project which is funded by Transport Infrastructure Ireland will provide a high-quality greenway from Collooney to Bellaghy Co. Sligo passing through Coolaney, Tobercurry and Curry on the way.
It is envisaged the development of The Sligo Greenway has the potential to attract domestic and international visitors to come, explore and stay in the region. It also has the potential to link into the proposed Sligo, Leitrim and & Northern Counties Railway (SLNCR) Greenway, which would result in over 100km of Greenway from Enniskillen to Charlestown, Co. Mayo.
Arup has been appointed by Sligo County Council to provide multi-disciplinary engineering and other specialist consultancy services to progress the project through Phases 1-4 of the Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) Project Management Guidelines.
The Project is currently at Phase 1 entitled Concept and Feasibility. The purpose of Phase 1 is to develop and investigate in further detail the feasibility of the Project, to identify a suitable study area for the examination of preliminary route options and to implement the project management structure.
Public consultation forms an important part of advancing the design process towards the development of route options and allows the involvement of the public in identifying key constraints.
Public Consultation regarding the study area for the project is planned from Monday 29 May to Friday 23 June 2023. This consultation is being held online through a project website which contains all the information that will be displayed at the in-person public consultation events. This includes an interactive map of the study area and constraints and a feedback page for the submission of comments or queries. The project website is accessible at www.sligogreenway.ie.
