Canal Bank walk re-opens in time for Mobility Week

Details of ‘Car Free Day’ in Kerry announced

Mobility Week



European Mobility Week is an annual campaign on sustainable urban mobility which runs from 16th to 22nd September 2016. The aim of the campaign is to encourage and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite people to try out alternatives to car use, i.e. walking, cycling, car sharing and public transport. Each year mobility week focuses on a particular topic – this year’s theme is ‘Smart Mobility - Strong Economy.’

As part of Mobility Week, a Car Free Day will take place across County Kerry this Thursday 22nd September 2016. Everyone is encouraged to participate in this one day event by trying to leave the car at home and choosing an alternative form of transport, i.e. cycling, walking, car sharing or public transport.

Kerry County Council is delighted to invite members of the public to walk or cycle on the recently re-opened Canal Bank Walkway in Tralee Town which has been upgraded to the tune of €400,000 as part of Tralee Active Travel initiative. Lighting columns are installed and will be operational in the coming weeks just in time for the dark evenings.

Kerry County Council has also partnered with a number of primary schools in the Tralee area to organised a week of fun walking / cycling activities for primary schools students. For more information or to give car sharing /public transport a go log onto www.traleeactivetravel.ie or www.mobilityweek.eu.
