Greenways IH News 2021

Another greenway

Finally, something other than railways, but it is still about greenways, which appear to be the new thing for local authorities all over the Republic of Ireland.

The Irish Times reports that Dublin City Council are to seek Part 8 planning permission to widen the towpaths of sections of the Royal Canal in their administrative area.

Public consultation on this is supposed to be available but I cannot see any reference to it on Dublin City Council’s website, nor on Waterways Ireland’s.

Per the Irish Times, the sections to be widened (which means narrowing of the canal) are:

600m west of Lock 6, 345m west of Broomebridge and 85m west of Lock 8.
