  1. I realise these are just “Indicative designs” but there’s not really much to get excited about around Amiens street and Memorial Road; no space allocated to cyclists.

    Also what happens to a cyclist coming off the two way cycle track at the end of Westmoreland Street towards college green? Is there going to be provision for cycling on the Luas Tracks?

    And is there really any change for cyclists at Beresford Place?
    Bus Lanes aren’t really a nice option considering you have to share them with aggressive Bus and Taxi drivers.

  2. I’d share your concerns and go further to say the outlined layout around Custom House and on Dame Street / College Green is worse for cyclists than what’s in place right now.

    The above and the first story covering the contents of the report is just about a making the report public — news coverage without any comment or analyzes. I would have liked to have comment from different groups, coverage of more of the detail of the study and some of my own comment on the drawings a but my own lack of time did not allow for this all in one.
