TURNING OF THE SOD AT BALDOYLE TO PORTMARNOCK GREENWAY


Construction has just commenced on the Baldoyle to Portmarnock Walking and Cycling Greenway project, which Atkins has delivered under the leadership of Technical Director Martin Deegan through all stages, from concept through design planning procurement and construction supervision. Murphy International was awarded the contract earlier this month by Fingal County Council, with the end of October being targeted for substantial completion of the works.

On the 23rd of July 2019 the Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien attended the Turning of the Sod event for the Baldoyle to Portmarnock Walking and Cycling Greenway project in North County Dublin. The proposed greenway is located at the Racecourse Park and will allow cyclists and pedestrians to travel through the park parallel to the Coast road linking Baldoyle with Portmarnock. When completed, the scheme will represent a major new amenity for the area. Welcoming the news, Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien said: “I am delighted to see work commence on this pedestrian and cycling greenway in this beautiful coastal setting. The outdoor active lifestyle is becoming increasingly popular and I can see this greenway becoming a very popular, safe and enjoyable resource for the local community as well as visitors and commuters.”
