COLERAINE TO GIANT’S CAUSEWAY GREENWAY
“Causeway Coast Greenway”
World-leading engineering innovation is a Northern Ireland thing, and one of the lesser-known examples is a tramway which used to run between Portrush and the Giant’s Causeway on the north coast – the world’s first hydro-electric powered tramway and the first tramway over 5 miles long to be powered by electricity. The GIant’s Causeway and Bushmills Railway keeps heritage rail alive on the final section today, but a greenway along the entire route is a worthy future endeavour.
