BOG MEADOWS GREENWAY
“Bog Meadows Greenway”
A major factor in West Belfast’s low cycling rates is a lack of safe, dedicated connections with the city centre.
A new greenway project to create a 2.7 mile traffic-free corridor from the heart of Belfast to Andersonstown could boost active travel in the city, and enhance the prospects of an even more impressive West Belfast project – the “South West Gateway”.

“Planning a dedicated cycling route along the edge of the M1 motorway to the Kennedy Indutrial Estate would create a truly viable active travel corridor into Belfast City Centre, capable of real modal shift and relief to the congested Falls Road.
The existing pathways across the Bog Meadows and across into Falls Park cut a handy route as far as Turf Lodge, but does little to promote safe cycling routes into the more populous areas of Andersonstown and beyond.”
