Further changes to the cycle paths on the N11 in Dublin are planned by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.

Details of the plans are included in preliminary design published as part of the non-statutory public consultation for the “N11 Quality of Service Improvements” project for the section of the N11 between Brewery Road to Stillorgan Park Road.

The changes include footpath improvements, bus stop upgrades, the removal of a limited number of slip turns, and cycling elements.

The cycling features include replacing long lengths of shared use paths with separate cycle paths and footpaths; wider cycle paths; new or wider cycle lanes at junctions and leading onto the N11; bus stop bypasses for cyclists behind most bus stops; and turn left to go right arrangements at major junctions.

The council says: “This scheme will significantly improve road safety for all road users along the N11 between the junction of Brewery Road and the junction of Stillorgan Park Road.”

Submissions and observations can be emailed to traffic@dlrcoco.ie before Friday April 25. Details and drawings can be found at dlrcoco.ie.

IrishCycle.com is reader-funded journalism. That means it's funded by readers like you.

Subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October).

If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!

Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.

IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
