Share a Great Place: New Code of Conduct for the Newry-Portadown Canal Towpath

Posted on

Armagh Banbridge Craigavon Council (ABC) Council is promoting a simple Code of Conduct for all users of the Newry-Portadown Canal Towpath to abide by.

It encourages harmonious interaction across the shared-use paths by relying on all users:

  • being considerate towards each other,
  • taking responsibility for their own actions, and
  • caring for the environment.

Launching the Code of Conduct, Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, Councillor Kevin Savage said:

“The Newry-Portadown Canal Towpath is a fantastic asset for the people of our borough, offering a picturesque place to exercise at or relax and unwind in – all while enjoying its beautiful natural surroundings.

“Council’s new Code of Conduct offers a simple but important guide for all towpath users, focusing on the importance of everyone treating the walkway and its users with respect and consideration. I would urge all residents and visitors to the area to follow the Code to help ensure we all get to enjoy this shared space as safely as possible.”
