The Galway to Athlone cycleway will complete the circa 270km car-free corridor between Galway and Dublin for cyclists and walkers. The project is being led by the local authorities, Galway City Council, Galway, Roscommon, and Westmeath County Councils.
Consultants, RPS from Galway, were appointed in 2020 to start with a blank canvas and identify a project study area and constraints. The work is being informed by public consultation before the project team undertakes environmental studies and detailed design.
The first Public Consultations were held in August 2020. Five broad route corridors have since been developed.
The second public consultation took place in January 2021, showing the route corridor options.
The third consultation will run from 8th December 2021 to 31st January 2022 to gather the public's comments on the emerging preferred route corridor option shown below.
