NRA opens first national cycle lane

THE first national road with a cycleway will be officially opened today.

The 3.8km N59 Derrylea scheme was built at a cost of €7m and is located just outside Clifden, Co Galway.

The National Roads Authority (NRA) said the scheme was "significant" because it was the first time a national route had a cyclepath.

It was intended to build cycle facilities on national routes to reduce car journeys and encourage tourism.
