Additional funding has been announced for an extension to the Waterside Greenway in Derry.
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Alderman Graham Warke says the Strathfoyle Greenway will be a demonstration of how this kind of infrastructure can be built with people, biodiversity and climate change at its heart.
An additional £400,000 of funding has been announced for the Strathfoyle Greenway Project, as an extension to the popular Waterside Greenway.
The link is designed to connect Stradowen in Strathfoyle to Derry City centre, as well as the wider Derry City Greenway network, and will add 2.7km of greenway for cycling and walking.
The total funding for the greenway has now reached £2.64 million, with construction to get underway early in 2022. It’s expected the project will be completed by the end of the year.
