Urban mini-greenway opened in Rathfarnham

Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Councillor Fintan Warfield, opening the greenway

A mini-greenway linking parts of Rathfarnham, which will allow for quicker cycling and walking trips, was opened last week.

While the path is only around 600 meters, it will provide for direct access from parts of Rathfarnham around Grange Road to Dundrum. Locally the route allows for a direct link between Nutgrove Shopping Centre, in the Dun-Laoghaire Rathdown County Council area, and Saint Endas Park in the South Dublin County Council area.

...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 nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The mayor of South Dublin County Council, Councillor Fintan Warfield (pictured) launched the route at the start of National Bike Week. Mayor Fintan Warfield said: “Given its attractive, off road setting, the new greenway has significant potential for connecting communities, providing access to amenities and local facilities as well as commuter cycling”.

The permeability project, by South Dublin County Council, was funded by the National Transport Authority. It includes a 4m wide shared walking and cycling path, lighting, CCTV, landscaping, traffic calming, and footpath upgrades.

South Dublin County Council said last week that it is working with Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to develop the route further by linking it to the Slang River Greenway that runs from Marlay Park to Dundrum.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.
