Boyne Greenway

    Planning permission for the Drogheda to Mornington greenway rejected...

    The board says it is not satisfied that Meath County Council has demonstrated beyond reasonable scientific doubt that the proposed walkway and cycleway would not adversely affect the integrity of a number of special areas of conservation.

    Today's report states that the increased level of usage by pedestrians and cyclists associated with the greenway will result in potential adverse effects on the wintering waterbirds of the Boyne Estuary.

    This is really disappointing.

    I had read some of the objections by local residents and found some of their reasons for objection to be utterly pathetic.

    The majority of us are being denied progress by a minority of nimbys.

    According to the report above the concern was more about conservation / environment / protecting the biodiversity of the estuary and the sand dunes, rather than people. What are they going next I wonder.

    Perhaps make R151 a single lane with yield signs here and there (similar to the road to Oldbridge)?
