Construction is obvious on all 48kmDate: October 9, 2015
It's impossible to visit any section of the abandonded Waterford to Dungarvan railway and not see the hive of activity throughout all 48 kilometers. This includes stripping vegetation, clearing drains, building culverts and underpasses, new piping and ducting, laying gravel, laying tarmac, landscaping, fencing, cleaning viaducts and repairing bridges.
The Waterford Greenway is going to be a huge attraction for the South East and areas along its route are already gearing up for an influx of visitors in Summer 2016 when all 48km of the greenway will be open. This will benefit shops, pubs, B+Bs, hotels etc. Dungarvan, Clonea, Durrow, Stradbally, Kilmacthomas, Carrolls Cross, Kilmeaden and Waterford City are all directly on the route and the rural communities are set for a very welcome boost.
