Hazzard welcomes £200,000 additional investment for eight new Greenway designs
Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has welcomed the announcement by the Department of Infrastructure and the Public Health Agency of £200,000 in additional funding to develop plans for eight new Greenway schemes.
The South Down MP said:
“As the former Infrastructure Minister who launched the Greenways strategy, I am delighted to see funding being used to support Greenway development across the North.
“This investment will mean better opportunities for walking and cycling for children and adults.
“Having launched the strategy on the old Belfast & Co Down railway line in Dundrum I’m delighted to see the route is again included in the list of areas receiving additional funding at this next stage.
“The potential of linking the highly successful Comber Greenway to the kingdom of Mourne is really exciting and I will continue to work with local council to ensure this project advances in the months ahead.”
