Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon has welcomed the completion of a further two sections of the Dungiven to Foreglen shared cycle and pedestrian path.
The £261,000 scheme widened approximately 0.5 kilometres of the existing footway opposite Owenbeg GAA facility and converted almost 1 kilometre of existing hard shoulder on the A6 Foreglen Road between Dernaflaw Rd and Derrychrier Rd to create the shared path.
Minister Mallon said:
“I am committed to improving infrastructure throughout the north to encourage more cycling, walking and active travel. I am delighted to hear that these new sections of shared path are already being well used by both cyclists and pedestrians and will contribute towards a better future that delivers more for our citizens, socially and economically, delivering cleaner, greener and healthier communities.”
