Infrastructure Minister John O’Dowd met with West Belfast Partnership Board today to discuss active travel opportunities in the area.
Speaking after the meeting Minister O’Dowd said:
“I am committed to improving active travel opportunities and am pleased to hear the enthusiasm for cycling infrastructure from the West Belfast Partnership Board and for the development of the West Belfast Greenway, a key component of the Department’s ‘Belfast Cycling Network Delivery Plan.
“A feasibility study is underway to determine route options for the greenway which aims to create a shared cycling and walking route of approximately 10 kilometres, from the Bog Meadows adjacent to Broadway Roundabout to the Lagan Tow Path close to Glenburn Road, Dunmurry.
“My Department will now continue to engage with stakeholders to further discuss route options and move the project towards design stage.”
