Meath Sustainable Transport Projects awarded €12.8m
Sustainable transport projects will provide facilities for cyclists and walkers across Meath
The National Transport Authority has awarded €12.8 million to support sustainable transport projects in Co. Meath. A total of €240m has been allocated for projects across the entire country, an increase of just over €130m compared to last year’s funding.
The funding is being made available to provide sustainable transport and mobility options and to reallocate road space to include cycling lanes, widened footpaths, cyclist parking, raised pedestrian crossings and reducing road width at crossing points as well as other improvements. Added to the news that Meath County Council is to get up to 12 new jobs in Active Travel positions to help walking and cycling, we hope to see lots of high quality projects in the near future.
Navan Cycling Initiative welcomes this funding from the NTA and await further details from Meath County Council. Notable projects include:
- Navan – Trim Cycle Route (Boyne Greenway)
- Navan GDA Cycle Network – Proudstown Rd to Trim Road
- Navan GDA Cycle Network – Fairgreen to Johnstown
- Ratoath GDA Cycle Network – Ratoath Town Network
- Dunboyne Cycle Network Plan (Planning and Design)
- Navan 2030 – Contract 4: N51 Park and Ride
