Murphy welcomes over €3m in funding for active travel in Roscommon

Senator Eugene Murphy has welcomed news that the National Transport Authority (NTA) has allocated €290m in funding to local authorities across Ireland to support the rollout of walking and cycling infrastructure in 2024. This will include €3,050,000 for County Roscommon.

“The Active Travel Investment Programme for 2024 will fund new and existing Active Travel projects. Among the major projects to be funded is the Ballaghaderreen Town Development in County Roscommon”, said Senator Murphy.

“This funding reflects the dedication to making walking, cycling and wheeling safer and more accessible throughout the country. We are delivering large and small projects that are making our communities much more attractive, safer and healthier.

“Many of the most attractive cities and towns in the world are the ones that prioritise active travel and now many more locations here in Ireland can join this list of great places to live and visit”, concluded Senator Murphy.
