Press Release: Kilbeggan to Mullingar Greenway

Tell us your views on the proposed Kilbeggan to Mullingar Greenway project

Westmeath County Council (WCC) in conjunction with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) intends to deliver a greenway from Kilbeggan to Mullingar. This section of greenway will complete a strategic link between the established greenway infrastructure, which is part of the Galway to Dublin national cycleway, at Mullingar and the greenway infrastructure at Kilbeggan, which links onto the Grand Canal greenway. This will provide a high-quality greenway, designed to promote cycling, walking and other non-motorised travel.

This project will be carried out in a phased process in accordance with the TII's Project Manager’s Manual for Greenway Projects. Westmeath County Council (WCC) have appointed consultant engineers, RPS to carry out Phases 1 to Phase 4 of this proposed project.

We are now at the initial Phase 1 Public Consultation stage of project development, which is focused on the Study Area and Constraints. We have identified the broad project study area (see map overleaf) within which the greenway could feasibly be located.

Westmeath County Council (WCC) want to hear your views on this project and invite you to attend the project’s first public consultation event in Bloomfield House Hotel, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, N91 HP8E on the 18 May 2023 between 3pm and 8pm.

At this event, maps and information will be displayed and members of Westmeath County Council’s (WCC) project team and RPS will be in attendance to discuss the project and answer any questions you may have.

A brochure with project details and a feedback form can be collected at the event or from Westmeath County Council (WCC) National Roads Office following the event to submit your feedback on the project.

All feedback should be returned to the project team by the 8 June 2023 by either email to; info@kilbeggantomullingargreenway.ie or post to; Kilbeggan to Mullingar Greenway, RPS, Lyrr 2, IDA Business & Technology Park, Mervue, Galway, H91 H9CK
