The people of Carrickmacross and its environs are being asked to take part in an important piece of work which will potentially change how the town looks, and how people travel around the town, over the next few years.
As part of the government’s Smarter Travel initiative, The Municipal District of Carrickmacross-Castleblayney has taken up the challenge for Carrickmacross to become an Active Travel Town, and to put in place a range of measures and supports which will facilitate more people to use sustainable forms of transport for more of their daily journeys.
The first step of the process is to prepare a Walking & Cycling Strategy for the town. The Municipal District is carrying out an audit of the current situation, and consulting with the public, the schools, employers and employees in the town regarding their needs and what they would like to see provided in their town.
It is intended that this strategy will form a blueprint for a number of initiatives in the coming years, and will enable the Council to draw down funding from the Dept. of Transport or any other funding opportunities to back up the initiatives identified in the strategy.
