Muckish Railway Walks, Greenway

Donegal County Council has announced plans to upgrade the existing Muckish Railway walk as part of Phase 1 of the proposed Burtonport to Letterkenny Greenway.

The plans are currently out for public consultation with the public urged to have their say.

As part of the first phase of the Burtonport to Letterkenny Greenway project Donegal County Council has put plans to extend the existing Muckish Railway Walk out to public consultation.

The local authority is proposing to upgrade approximately 7km of the route through the townlands of Carrownamaddy, Kildarragh, Ray, Moyra Glebe and Dunmore.

The provision of ducting, way marking and directional signage will also be included as well as trail furniture such as seating and cycle stands along with landscaping and all ancillary development and associated accommodation works.
