Fingal County Council is proposing to develop the Royal Canal Urban Greenway, which will provide a high
quality, peaceful and safe route to serve Castleknock, Blanchardstown, Clonsilla, Coolmine and the wider
Dublin 15 area. The proposed Urban Greenway will encourage recreation while offering an attractive
alternative transport choice for school children and commuters, bringing significant environmental,
economic and health benefits to the wider community.
Conscious of the special place that the Royal Canal holds within the community, and its designation as a
protected structure, the Urban Greenway aims to protect and enhance the existing environment along the
corridor. An Emerging Preferred Route for the scheme is now available. Fingal County Council would welcome
any comments you might have on the proposal and the project team looks forward to engaging with you to
discuss the developing design and the next steps in the planning process.
