Written answers (Question to Transport)

The recent funding call for Greenways closed on 30th November last year. Twenty-two applications were received from fifteen Local Authorities and one State Agency. Over the last few months, officials from my Department, along with members of the Project Assessment Board, have been meticulously assessing each of these detailed applications based on the criteria laid out in the Strategy for the Future Development of National and Regional Greenways.

I hope that in the next few weeks I will be in a position to award funding to the successful applicants, and an announcement will be made at that time.
