Ross finds extra funding for Waterford Greenway

Friday 09 November 2018

The Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport, Shane Ross T.D. today announced additional funding for the Waterford Greenway.

He stated “I’m delighted to be in a position to award additional funding to the Waterford Greenway for improvement and remedial works. We have been highlighting the success of the Waterford Greenway since it opened in March 2017. The numbers using it and spending time and money in Dungarvan and Kilmacthomas has been phenomenal and has provided proof of the economic benefits that arise from Greenways and reflects the focus of Government on revitalising our smaller towns and villages.”

He continued “The standard of the Waterford Greenway is top class and it has inspired others to develop their own greenways projects. I look forward to receiving many high quality applications for funding under our new Strategy funding call which closes on November 30th. We are looking to fund projects that have planning permission in place already or that will have permission in place shortly, we are also looking to fund projects where land access issues have been addressed and that bring users to areas of wonderful scenery and things to see and do along the route. I would advise all those seeking to make an application to visit the Waterford Greenway and to learn from them.”
