Derry to Muff Greenway





This project will provide cross-border linkage of a high-quality Greenway facility from Muff to the commuter settlement of Culmore and connecting into the wider network of urban Greenways in Derry. A dedicated cycling and walking bridge is also due to be constructed over Pennyburn at Bay Road Park, linking to the existing shared cycle/walking route under Foyle Bridge and along River Foyle, continuing to the city centre/Guildhall, thereby supporting and enhancing the achievement of the NWGN objectives as follows:


  • Bring social, economic, and environmental well-being to all
  • Construct significant stretches of greenway and cycling/walking routes
  • Encourage more people to walk and cycle as part of their daily routine (non-commute)
  • To further develop a cross border network of greenways that link people with places locally
  • Investment in the wider economic and social infrastructure in the North West Region
  • Adoption and compliance with policies such as Active Travel etc
  • Improve safety for vulnerable road users and reduce their interaction with vehicular traffic
  • A reduction of CO2 emissions through a reduced number of non-motorised journeys





Construction commenced on the Donegal section of the project was completed in May 2022. Construction on the Derry section began in January 2023, with the appointment of a contractor to oversee the construction phase. Read more
