New Cycle Path Opens Dublin Coast From Sutton To Sandymount

Play

RENUA Ireland TD, TERENCE FLANAGAN welcomes news that construction work began on the Dublin Bay cyclepath in Clontarf this week.

Chatting to Pat Meehan, he says: “There is currently no designated cyclepath from the Wooden Bridge to Causeway Road in Clontarf and as a result of this cyclists have to come off the cyclepath onto the main road. The road is in a bad state of repair and often cyclists have to navigate around a number of parked cars.

“This is very dangerous for cyclists and a continuous cycle path is much-needed in the area.

“Under the new scheme the width of the road will be reduced and a two way cyclepath will run along the coast.

“Once this section of path is completed it will become the first finished section of the Sutton to Sandycove cycle route, a 22km long cycle path across the city.

“The Sutton to Sandycove route has huge tourism potential and will undoubtedly attract large numbers of users to the area.

“The Council has proposed that the works will be completed by July 2016 and I hope that disruption to traffic and local residents is kept at a minimum”.
