Millar's Lane


Brochure & Drawings (October 2021)

Galway City Council would like to provide an update on progress of Millar’s Lane upgrade, through a brochure and drawings available for download on this page.

The objectives of the Millar’s Lane Upgrade are to:

  • Support permeability, by providing off-road walking and cycling routes for residents, and for children travelling to school;
  • Enhance connections between Rahoon Road, Manor Drive and the surrounding areas;
  • Create diverse and functional open spaces – with a balance of ‘passive’ and ‘active’ uses e.g. seating, walking, cycling and play.

The design recognises the ecological sensitivity of the route, and provides for biodiversity – both flora and fauna. Areas of the parks along Millar’s Lane will be managed for the benefit of pollinators, bats, and other species, balancing the needs of those using the route, while supporting biodiversity.

Works on the Millar’s Lane Upgrade will include lighting along the route, and a pedestrian crossing at Gort na Bró to improve connectivity. Millar’s Lane will link into the wider Galway City Cycle Network, supporting travel by bike beyond the Knocknacarra/ Rahoon area, and will also support access to the City bus network.

Next Steps

Galway City Council welcome your feedback on the proposed Millar’s Lane Upgrade by the 22nd October 2021.
On review of feedback received, and subject to the approval of the funding agency (the National Transport Authority), it is envisaged that the upgrade will be undertaken in Quarter 1 2022.

Feedback is welcome in writing:
