Smithboro Information Event Postponed

The information event due to be held on Thursday 27th August 2020 to display the preferred route for the greenway has been postponed, to allow the event organisers to reconfigure the event to take account of recent changes to Covid 19 protocols.

It is hoped to re-organised the event in the very near future. If you are interested in attending the re-organised event, you can register your interest by emailing the Project Manager, Anthony Morrow at amorrow@monaghancoco.ie


Public Information Events August 2020 to view Preferred Route for Greenway Middletown to Smithborough

We are pleased to announce that following a thorough route assessment process, the Preferred Route Corridor for the Ulster Canal Greenway Phase 2, Smithborough to Middletown, has now been selected.

The Preferred Route Drawings are available for your information on the project website here.

Over the coming weeks, a series of Public Information Events for communities along the route of the Greenway will be held. Landowners, local residents, and the general public are invited to attend to receive a presentation from the design team and to speak with them and make arrangements for follow up appointments on site as required.

These Public Information events will be held in:

1.  Tuesday August 11th  Tyholland Community Sports Complex 6-9pm
2. Wednesday August 19th
Middletown Markethouse Main St   6-9pm
3. Thursday August 27th
Smithborough Community Hall 6-9pm

These events will be run strictly in accordance with current government guidelines on the Covid 19 virus, and as such, the numbers attending each event must be controlled to ensure social distancing protocol is observed.

There will be three sessions at each venue, 6pm, 7pm and 8pm, and attendance is strictly by appointment only. Spaces at each session will be limited to 12 persons only.
