Transport Insights was appointed by Waterways Ireland in late 2015 to provide analytical support for an INTERREG funding application to develop a new cross-border greenway scheme.
The scheme represented the first phase of the proposed Ulster Canal Greenway, and will connect Smithborough in Co. Monaghan to Middletown in Co. Armagh.
The demand analysis (supported by SYSTRA as sub-consultants) was summarised within a Sustainable Transport Case for the scheme, and accompanied the first stage of the funding application process.
Following shortlisting of the scheme, Transport Insights provided supplemental demand analysis inputs to the final stage of the funding application process. A decision on funding is currently pending.
