Chamber To Continue To Engage With Council On Greenway Progress

Posted by


TRALEE Chamber Alliance says it will continue to work with Kerry County Council on any efforts necessary to accelerate the opening of the Tralee-Fenit Greenway.

An open letter was published in The Kerryman newspaper this week signed by over 50 businesses and interest groups urging the Council to complete the project before the 2021 summer season. The project is scheduled for completion in the autumn of 2021.

Mayor of Tralee Cllr Terry O’Brien told Radio Kerry earlier today that because of restrictions on space  on site, they could not go any faster with the project even if they had more resources.

A statement issued this evening by Tralee Chamber Alliance reads: “We wish to acknowledge the recently published open letter, and the desire expressed on the timelines for the opening of the Tralee-Fenit Greenway. Over the past number of months Tralee Chamber, working in collaboration with Mayor Terry O’Brien, the Elected Members and the Tralee Municipal District office of Kerry County Council, have been engaged in ongoing reviews of the progress of these works.

We have assurances every effort that can be made, will be made to accelerate the project. The opening of the greenway in advance of Summer 2021 would without question be of significant value economically to the tourism sector in Tralee and in Kerry as a whole.

“In discussions between Tralee Chamber, the Mayor of Tralee and the Tralee MD this fact has been acknowledged and accepted unanimously. A number of proposals are under consideration should the early opening of the full greenway not be achieved pre-summer 2021. We fully intend over the coming weeks and months ahead to continue to engage on the progress of the greenway.”
