South East Greenway a major infrastructural project for whole region

Work is now underway on the South East Greenway, reports SouthEast Ireland. The amenity will be a state-of-the-art, 24km cycling and walking route linking New Ross with Ferrybank through South Kilkenny.

It is a major infrastructural project not only for South Kilkenny but for the whole South East region, with three local authorities involved in the project - Waterford, Wexford & Kilkenny.

Director of Services at Kilkenny Co. Council Sean McKeown says the construction stage of the project should start by October but added some work has already begun:

“The first major phase of the construction of the greenway has got underway now with the lifting of the railway track & sleepers, that’ll take about three months, we’re currently finalising the accommodation works & the detailed design for the 24km greenway between Waterford & New Ross which will traverse South Kilkenny and we hope to go to construction of the greenway itself in late September, early October”.

The bulk of the greenway runs through South Kilkenny and will be a huge game-changer for the region in terms of tourism & economic dividend.

The South East regional greenways office currently has 18 greenway and blueway projects under consideration at various phases from feasibility, to planning, to construction.
