Dutch and Danish cycle path designers need to visit Ireland to take in the artworks that are Irish cycle paths.

This is stunning work: A cycle path interrupted by a bus stop as is all too common in the Dun LaoghaireRathdown County Council area. But here you don’t need the usual rumble strip. No, here, cyclists who stick to the path contend with a drain and a slop between the footpath and the bus stop edge.

Location: Churchtown Road Upper
Local body/authority: Dun LaoghaireRathdown County Council
Street View: Currently shows a previous design

  1. Yeah, that looks like the work of DLRDCoCo alright, they have a fantastic record of ultra low performance. It means their standards can’t drop too much lower. You just have to start at very low level of performance and maintain it.
    After spending 475,000 + Euros on a roundabout in Killiney and 37 Million Euros of Taxpayers money on a library we are lucky to have anything left for facilities at all. It is only a matter of time before cycle paths are happening in the county with the help of Private/Public Partnerships. Of course they’ll probably have to be tolled!!!!

  2. I cycle that route regularly and from the dundrum bridge to church town its a mess. From churchtown to the rathfarnham rd the new cycle lane is great. (Just need cars to not park in it)
