Moate railway station to be refurbished as part of athlone to mullingar cycleway
Moate Railway Station will be given a facelift as part of the Athlone to Mullingar cycleway project.
150,000 euro has been allocated for external work to four of the station's buildings; it's been derelict since the station closed in 1987.
Westmeath County Council will carry out the refurbishment work, which includes replacing roofs and reinforcing walls, next month.
The Athlone to Mullingar cycleway is part of the planned National Greenway amenity between Dublin and Galway; the 40 kilometre section is expected to be completed in July.
Secretary of Moate Action Group, Peter Dolan, says they're hoping to restore the station internally
