Galway Cycling Campaign warmly welcomes the news that Hildegard Naughton will serve as Junior Minister in the Department of Transport in An Taoiseach Micheál Martin’s Government.
Kevin Jennings, chairperson of the Galway Cycling Campaign said, “We congratulate Minister Naughton on her appointment to the Department of Transport. This is good news for Galway city and county.
Minister Naughton regularly engages with us on cycling issues and our ongoing Change Our Streets movement for more space and less speed for people walking and cycling.
As former chair of the cross-party Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action, Minister Naughton understands the intimately intertwined social and economic challenges of congestion, public health, and quality of life.
The Programme for Government rightly recognises cycling as a sustainable solution to these collective challenges.
We all want Galway to be a safer, healthier and happier city and county for all ages and abilities to live, learn, work, and play.
We look forward to working with Minister Naughton to make cycling a very real and very safe option for all.”
