GREENWAY PROJECTS WHICH INTERSECT
Following the old ‘Derry Road’ line, this potential 60km greenway would run from Omagh through Strabane and along both banks of the Foyle into Derry.
With a new dual carriageway bypassing the old A4 road from Belfast to Enniskillen, the remaining road could eventually host a 21km roadside greenway link.
A winding 85km former railway route through mid Ulster through Cookstown, Magherfelt, Maghera, Garvagh and Kilrea.
Former railway route 43km south from Omagh passing Fintona and the junction to Bundoran before going through Ballinamallard into Enniskillen.
Successful greenway projects are driven by the passion of local people. If you have an update to share, a story to tell about the history of the route or future of the Omagh to Dungannon Greenway, or if you want to submit a picture or video to this page, please get in contact.
