The section from the bypass in to Old Cross Square is now open a year, and in its first year accommodated 49,485 users. The second section of the route, from the Glen Road to the Threemilehouse Road, opened in May and has already seen 35,624 visitors in its first seven months. Monaghan County Council is now working with neighbouring Armagh and Dungannon Councils to investigate the development of the entire length of the Ulster Canal as a Greenway.
