The popular walking and cycling path at Millar’s Lane is being upgraded, as part of Galway City Council’s transport permeability projects. As part of the path upgrade, access may be limited between Thursday 10th June and Friday 25th June 2021, to facilitate ground investigation works. While it is the intention to maintain access throughout the ground investigation works, please be advised that local diversions may be in place and signed accordingly. This project is funded by the National Transport Authority.
The Millar’s Lane project entails upgrading of the existing pathway, to provide an urban permeability route in the Knocknacarra area, linking Rahoon Road and Kingston Road. The Lane is approximately 950m long, and runs by estates including Garraí de Brún, An Logán, The Orchard, Manor Close, Gort na Bró, Grangemore, Gort Gréine, Cruachan Park, and Ros Geal.
The ultimate aim of the project is to support permeability into adjacent estates, providing off-road walking and cycling routes for residents, and for children travelling to school. Millar’s Lane will link into the wider Galway City Cycle Network, supporting travel by bike beyond the Knocknacarra/ Rahoon area. Works on the Millar’s Lane project will also include lighting along the route, and a pedestrian crossing at Gort Na Bró to improve connectivity.
Galway City Council is currently in the design phase of the project, with ground investigation from 10th to 25th June to inform the design. Further updates on the project will be made available as the design progresses. See www.activetravelgalway.ie
