Thurles Walking & Cycling Scheme.

Tipperary County Council intends to develop the Thurles Walking and Cycling Scheme, which is expected to deliver a pedestrian and cyclist shared path between Thurles Train Station and Bohernamona Road that will provide connectivity to schools and collages along the route, with a designated bridge crossing over the River Suir, north of the existing bridge.

Envisaged Pedestrian and Cyclist Shared Path

This scheme consists of the development of a walking and cycling route across the northern boundary of the schools in Thurles, which will naturally change the mode of travel to and from local schools.
As readers are aware, the majority of the schools are located on the northern side of Thurles and are in close proximity to each other, however linkages are constrained by the River Suir.

Tipperary County Council is now inviting members of the public to have their say on the route options presented.
These route options are now available for inspection:
• On the Tipperary County Council’s website, (somewhat vaguely) HERE.
• At Thurles/Templemore Municipal District Office, Civic Offices, Castle Avenue, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Documents may be inspected during normal office hours, 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday from tomorrow Friday August 5th 2022, to Monday September 12th, 2022 inclusive, (excluding Bank Holidays).


Submissions can be made using the online feedback form available on the Virtual Project Exhibition website accessible at
or by email to, or by post addressed to: F.A.O. Thurles Walking & Cycling Scheme Team, Clifton Scannell Emerson Associates Consulting Engineers, 3rd Floor, The Highline, Bakers Point, Pottery Road, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, A96 KW29.

Closing date for receipt of submissions: 4:30pm on Monday 12th September 2022.
