Why is Greenway Diversion Being Proposed? – September 21st, 2020

Tralee Municipal District councillors are set to consider a proposed diversion to the Tralee-Fenit Greenway at a meeting this week.

The ten-kilometre Tralee-Fenit Greenway is due to be completed next year; the route will follow the disused railway line. Kerry County Council is now seeking approval from Tralee MD councillors for a 700-metre diversion at Bawnboy.

The council has declined to comment on why it is proposing the diversion, but campaign group Friends of the Tralee-Fenit Greenway says it was led to believe it was due to a business refusing to vacate the section of railway line. Keith Phelan is with Friends of Tralee-Fenit Greenway Group.
