Save the Liffey cycle route – Keep it on the Quays

Proposals to outline a segregated cycle path along the Liffey quays from the Phoenix Park to Dublin docks are to be significantly altered. Dublin City Council have been working on these plans since 2012, but is now planning for the cycle lanes to be located away from the quays and onto back streets for the first quarter of the route. The originally planned section provided a small part of the riverside that gave a safe and attractive cycle route for the north and south quays. Cycling campaigners have highlighted how redirecting this route into Smithfield will detract from the route and will leave many cyclists and other objectors dissatisfied.
