There was a “huge” turnout to a family-friendly protest cycle today in Salthill ahead of councillors voting on the future of the proposed cycle route trial tomorrow.
Hundreds of people from 6 months old to 94-years old took part in the cycle in a soggy Galway this morning.
As reported on Wednesday, 14 Galway City councillors are seeking to “backpedal” their support for Salthill cycleway trial.
The Galway Cycling Campaign said: “On a rainy February day, huge crowds turned out to demand change, from 6 months to 94 years old. Families want to get around safely. These roads are unsafe.”
The group added: “Councillors, our lives are in your hands. Make Salthill safe. Build the trial cycleway.”
Campaign chairperson Kevin Jennings said: “Loved the energy for safe cycling today in #Salthill. Tomorrow is the time, we’ve had drawing boards about this for decades. the current politicians for years can talk the talk but tomorrow they can … eh … spin the spin. Try it. Now. Make it work.”
