The works will involve the localised rerouting of short sections of the greenway. Signed diversion routes, along quiet local roads, will be in place Monday to Friday. The Greenway will be fully open throughout each weekend.

Details of the works locations, dates and diversions routes can be found below and will be updated on a weekly basis:

A little bit of greenway history..........

The Great Western Greenway, linking Westport and Achill Sound, was developed by Mayo County Council between May 2009 and July 2011. Section 1 linking Newport and Mulranny (18km) was opened in April 2010 and Sections 2 and 3 linking Westport to Newport (13km) and Mulranny to Achill Sound (11km) respectively were opened in July 2011.
