Cycle and Pedestrian lanes for Ballybofey-Stranorlar

Posted by Leah Fairman on Mar 24, 2021

Ballybofey-Stranorlar has a population of approx 2000 children in schools and creches. We also have many people involved outdoor activities including walking, running and cycling in the community.
The towns need to be developed to make it easier for school children and our community to move around safety without cars. Our town centres are walkable and easily accessible, but the pre-dominance of cars in the main streets, inadequate pavement width and lack of cycle lanes make it unsafe for non-car road users in most areas.
Establishing proper cycle and pedestrian lanes would
- link the heart of the towns with areas of recreation on the town boundaries
- support the development of wellbeing activities for people of all ages and abilities
- reduce the number of cars on the road, and congestion, especially at the start and end of the school day.
