€8M Allocated Towards Active Travel Projects In Wicklow.

€8m is being made available towards the delivery of approximately 28 Active Travel schemes in Wicklow.

The Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan TD and Minister of State Jack Chambers TD joined National Transport Authority Deputy CEO Hugh Creegan to announce €290m in funding to local authorities across Ireland to support the rollout of walking and cycling infrastructure in 2024. €8m is being made available in 2024 towards the delivery of approximately 28 Active Travel schemes in Co Wicklow.

This investment has seen more than 600km of cycling, walking and wheeling infrastructure delivered since 2020 under the NTA Active Travel Programme.
