South Tipperary County Council has been allocated grant funding by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport under the Active Travel Towns Programme for:


a) A Walking and Cycle Strategy for Towns: The development of a Strategy for the towns of Carrick-on-Suir, Tipperary, Cashel and Cahir and possibly Clonmel subject to funding.  A detailed Improvement Programme will be developed for walking and cycling facilitates. The key aim of the Strategy will be to maximise the role of cycling and walking as principle modes of transport and as leisure activities. Works identified in the Strategy will be rolled out over the lifetime of the Strategy, 2012 to 2020, as and when funding becomes available.

b) Walking and Cycling Facility at N24 Clonmel: Works on the N24 to provide a 2km off road cycle and pedestrian facility between Heywood Road Junction and the Cahir Road Roundabout. This facility will serve existing activities and attract new users and will form part of an important orbital link for an integrated cycle and pedestrian network to be established for the town.
Details of the proposed works are available here.

You are invited to make comments or suggestions in writing or by e-mail to inform the preparation of the Strategy and proposed works. Submissions should identify whether they refer to the Strategy or the Works at Clonmel. If referring to both then separate submissions should be made with respect to each.

All submissions received in writing (or via an e-mail) before 5pm on the 28th September 2012 will be taken into careful consideration. Such submissions or observations should be made to:


Mr. Peter Britton, Senior Engineer Roads Section, South Tipperary County Council, County Hall, Emmett Street, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary.
