atest press release from Cllr Derek Mitchell, issued on Tuesday, April 6th 2022…
An Bord Pleanala has approved the plans and Compulsory Purchase Order for the Delgany to Blacklion Cycle Way and Road project.
This includes a foot and cycle path on each side of the road which is being straightened.
This busy road joins 5 schools and is dangerous to cycle along with poor paths.
About 10 smallish plots of land, mostly ends of gardens, are needed hence, the need for the CPO.
I have been pressing for this for years as it should encourage cycling & walking to school cutting down car traffic. I have now asked for a timetable for the tendering and work and hope it will be completed within 2 years.
I have pressed for this for over 10 years, in order to reduce car use, and I am glad to see progress.
Possibly construction could start this year, provided there are no court cases.
