Ireland’s largest hotel operator Dalata, which owns the Maldron and Clayton hotel brands and also runs the Gibson hotel, is the latest group to call for the Greater Dublin Area Cycle Network to be built.
The hotel group follows Trinity College Dublin and Digit Game Studios to sign up to CyclingWorks Dublin which aims to show businesses support cycling.
Making the announcement on Twitter, CyclingWorks said: “We are happy to announce that @Dalatahotels is joining @tcddublin and @DIGITgaming in calling for @shane_RossTD and @TFIupdates to prioritise investment in the GDA Cycling Network Plan. Dalata seeks safer cycling conditions for their 2,250 staff on their 15 Dublin hotels and HQ.”
As we previously reported, the setting up of CyclingWorks in Dublin follows a group of the same name in London helping to show that businesses there supported segregated cycle paths on main roads in the UK’s capital city.
