Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has welcomed news that £20 million will be invested to provide all-Ireland cycle routes.
The North Antrim MLA said:
“As a keen cyclist, I welcome the investment of £20 million to link a number of greenways across the border.
“This investment will also contribute to and help resource Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard’s ambitious plans to develop 1,000km of greenways across the north.
“The benefits of developing greenways go well beyond transport. Anything that helps get people onto bikes is a good thing.
“The health, economic, environmental and social impacts help enhance the quality of life for users”
