Public consultation on Mayo Greenway proposal

Residents of Newport are encouraged to engage in a public consultation process in respect of the Great Western Greenway Cycling and Walking Trail.

It takes place on Wednesday next, May 11, at Hotel Newport from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

It is very important for everybody to give their feedback on the route and its safety aspects.

The infrastructure surrounding the Greenway includes the provision of public toilets and safe cycle paths through the town.

The issue of access from the Greenway into the main areas of Newport is also important so businesses can benefit from increased tourism.

Disability access is another factor to be considered by the public.
