Emly Village To Benefit From Active Travel Funding


Emly village is to benefit from Active Travel Funding.Tipperary County Council has published details of the proposal for public consultation.

The project will consist of a 2m wide footpath on the north side of the road entering Emly from Tipperary town (R515).

The upgrade will run from the Emly GAA grounds to Callanan’s Shop.

A 2m wide footpath on the south side of the road from St Ailbe’s Church Road to O’Donnell Engineering will also be provided.

The tarmac may be red near the school and pencil shaped bollards will be added to the footpath to prevent cars parking on the footpath.

Road crossings will be upgraded and utility covers and gullies adjusted as necessary.

The works are thought to be the first enhancement works completed in the village since 2008.

The measures are expected to improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.

The plans are available to view in the council office in Tipperary Town or on the Council website until Wednesday October 19th.

Tipperary county council will take feedback on the proposals until October 19th.

Submissions can be sent by email to activetravel@tipperarycoco.ie or by post to the Active Travel Office, Civic Offices, Emmet Street Clonmel.
Separately it is understood that the footpath linking the village to Glen Court will be renovated before Christmas.

County Tipperary received an allocation of €6.66m from the National Transport Authority for the Active Travel Investment Programme 2022.

The funds are being used to deliver a range of improvements for pedestrians and cyclists in many towns and villages across the county.

Tipperary county council says it expects that full allocation will be drawn down in 2022 as was the allocation of €5.17M in 2021.
