Boyne Greenway Scheme

The Boyne Greenway Scheme, Navan to Oldbridge Emerging Preferred Route is now open for public consultation. The Boyne Greenway, Navan to Oldbridge is a proposed greenway extending from Andy Brennan Park in Navan to the main gates at Oldbridge Estate which will link with the existing greenway. The proposed scheme will have an overall length of approximately 26km.

It is envisaged to be a flagship scheme for tourism in the county with the potential to promote and enhance the local tourist economy, as well as providing a superior public leisure and recreation amenity for the county’s residents.

As part of the project, a Feasibility Study on the Boyne Navigation Restoration Scheme has also been undertaken. The Boyne Navigation extends from the site of the Canal Harbour in Navan to Oldbridge Guard Lock.
