Public Consultation On Athlone To Galway Cycleway Extended

A route for the cycle path has not yet been chosen.

The third focused period of public consultation for the Athlone to Galway Cycleway has been extended.

Members of the public are being invited to give their view on the Preferred Route Corridor for the final stage linking Dublin to Galway.

No route has yet been chosen, and the Emerging Corridor is the space only within which the cycleway could potentially be routed.

The deadline for feedback has now been extended by four weeks, to February 28th, with landowner engagement to continue throughout the coming months.

The Corridor is well defined in areas of publicly owned lands including Bord Na Móna lands, Coillte forest roads and ESB lands.

Where private lands are included, the Corridor is wider and future discussions with landowners will form the basis for developing the route within the corridor.

The project team says it will endeavour to pick the least disruptive route possible, likely to be along the property boundary and it wants to engage with all landowners to understand their specific needs unique to each landholding, in order to incorporate this into their technical studies towards informing the next stage of the project.

Landowners and interested parties can contact the project team at telephone 091-509 267 or email

Project Information Office in Ballinasloe is also set to be reopened as a result of the lifting for covid restrictions.
