The Fitzwilliam cycle route may not be built if members of the public don’t support it by this Friday, cycling campaigners have warned.
The Dublin Cycling Campaign have asked people to support the route by taking Dublin City Council’s online survey, which should “only takes two minutes to do”.
The group said: “Dublin Cycling Campaign needs you to support the proposed FitzWilliam cycle route. Dublin City Council is proposing to build the FitzWilliam cycle route from Leeson Street bridge to Holles Street Hospital. It will be a route that is safe to cycle for people of all ages and abilities.”
The campaign said: “This is a ‘parking-protected’ cycle lane, where parking bays are used to keep cyclists segregated from general motor traffic. There is a raised kerb between the cycle track and the footpath, keeping pedestrians and cyclists separated from each other.”
“There is currently some vocal opposition to the proposed route. There’s more objectors than supporters for the scheme. Cyclists need to show their support for this new route or it may not be built.”
