We have noted an increase in the volume of cars parking on the Marlbank Road to access the Cuilcagh Boardwalk. We would like to remind people that, for now, the boardwalk REMAINS CLOSED.

Due to the narrow width of the boardwalk it is not possible to accommodate social distancing while walking the route.

The boardwalk was installed to offer protection to the sensitive blanket bog underneath, so we cannot permit a reopening which does not accommodate social distancing and may result in walkers stepping off the boardwalk on to the bog below to avoid other walkers.

Please note parking on the road poses both a danger to yourself and other road users and does not respect the wishes of local landowners. We please ask that you respect this and DO NOT VISIT the boardwalk at this time.

We will continue to review the situation as Northern Ireland progresses through the stages of the phased relaxation of restrictions.
