According to The Irish Examiner, medical device firm Stryker and the IDA have opened a two kilometre section of cycle and pedestrian greenway at the IDA business park in Carrigtwohill, Co Cork.
The cycleway will reportedly ultimately form part of the greenway that will link Dunkettle to Midleton being developed by Cork County Council.
The cycle path was reportedly developed and constructed by IDA Ireland with Stryker providing land and support for the section.
It will reportedly form an integral part of a larger initiative to construct a greenway across Cork county and into the city.
Public and private sector organisations reportedly united in an effort to develop and execute this section of cycleway at IDA Business & Technology Park, Carrigtwohill.
The official opening was reportedly attended by representatives from Cork County Council, IDA, and Stryker.
Stryker's vice president of manufacturing for Neurovascular, Mag O'Keeffe, reportedly attributed the successful development to the collaboration of organisations with a shared vision.
O'Keeffe reportedly said, "It is imperative that we build effective relationships to achieve a greater positive impact and reach than we ever could working on our own. This cycleway resulted from that approach.
"We were delighted to work with IDA Ireland, our neighbouring companies and Cork County Council to develop this section of an alternative transport corridor."
Head of regional development, IDA Ireland, Ray O'Connor reportedly said that part of their strategic focus is to support both green investment in their client base and across their offices and business parks, and, "We are very pleased to collaborate with Stryker and Cork County Council on this cycleway. Stryker's commitment to the region and their investment back into the local area highlights that their roots are firmly in Ireland, as an employer but also as an active member of the local and national community."
