North Strand Road to get cycling upgrade

Following from our report on a planned upgrade of the bridge at North Strand Road, it turns out that Dublin City Council are looking at upgrading more of the road, the busiest cycling route in the city.

Cllr Ray McAdam sent us an update:

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

[The] Roads & Traffic Department has informed me that Roads & Traffic had previously appointed a consultant to prepare a preliminary report for the widening of Newcomen Bridge in order to facilitate cyclists. This study will now be extended to include an assessment of the options for improving cycle facilities from The Five Lamps through to Fairview Park and Annesley Bridge. The completed report is not due to be ready until approximately November.

The section to be studied is in blue:
