Swann welcomes possibility of Causeway cycle path

NORTH Antrim Ulster Unionist MLA Robin Swann has warmly welcomed the “excellent announcement” that a cycle and pedestrian link is being considered between Bushmills and the Giant’s Causeway.

Mr Swann revealed the proposed link following a letter he received from his party colleague and Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy MLA.

Mr Swann added: “This is an excellent start to this much-needed project. As more and more people visit the Giant’s Causeway and the local region, we will need to ensure that access to the area is provided not just for motorists and touring coaches but also cyclists and pedestrians.

“I appeal to the Stormont Executive to find the cash to support Minister Kennedy’s tremendous initiative so that we can ultimately generate more finance for the local economy through increased tourism,” said Mr Swann.
