The Westmeath indepentent are reporting that the next phase of the Dublin Galway greenway could be opened by Easter. The upcoming phase, just a kilometre in length, extends the Dublin to Galway Greenway from the Whitegates in Athline into town adjacent to the Radisson Blu Hotel. This is a prerequisite for the next more complex and costly section which will see a new bridge built over the River Shannon to take cyclists over to Athlone Castle. According to the tender documents, the next phase will consist of earthworks and paving works for the cycleway track along the route, along with new culvert works, landscaping, installation of public lighting, electrical works, and traffic signalling works. In another exciting development Michael Kelly, Senior Executive Engineer from Westmeath County Council's National Roads Office told the paper that “the bridge (across the Shannon) is at detailed design stage and it's hoped to go tender on that in early 2021”
