A new project is commencing on the closed railway near Kiltimagh county Mayo. The project sponsored by Kiltimagh IRD is being funded by a grant secured with the help of Mayo Minister Michael Ring.  The velo-rail project on the closed railway for 6 km either side of Kiltimagh is welcome and will bring visitors into the town; however, we also ask that in order to make the facility socially inclusive for the local communities that a walking and cycling track (greenway) should be placed alongside the closed railway so that locals can use the facility as a free to use leisure facility, and to ensure connectivity to the greenway proposed for the entire route of the closed railway from Athenry to Collooney.  Mayo county council received 284 submissions on the county plan in 2012/13 asking for a greenway on this route, there is huge public support for this idea and we therefore ask for the views of the observers on the county plan to be respected.
