Please don’t waste taxpayers money rebuilding the railway bridge at Ballyglunin!

It was reported in regional press in July that the Ballyglunin Railway Bridge in county Galway on the route of the closed railway from Athenry to Sligo is going to be re-built to a standard for trains to traverse at a cost of over one million Euro. With no plans to re-open the railway line, and every chance the route will become a greenway, we are asking that the bridge only be re-built to accommodate the new greenway for the time being, this will cost considerably less, and if a railway becomes possible in the distant future then that will be the time to re-build the railway bridge.

Please don’t waste our tax payers money on a railway standard bridge that is simply not needed at this point in time.  Build a greenway standard footbridge as part of the Western Rail Trail project!
