NOTE: This is only our outline interpretation of what’s contained in the River Dodder Greenway feasibility study and supporting maps. It should only be treated as a rough estimate of the route and its features. It is not designed to be an exact overlay of where the route is planned to go and the plans which will go to the official planning stage will likely notable differ.


Purple line: Shared path
Green line: Cycle path
Blue line: Shared street/road (low, restricted volumes of motor traffic)
Yellow line: Possible alternative/secondary route
Red line: Possible link route

Red circle: Possible road crossing


Hello Reader... 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, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year 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

  1. Is feasibility study available to see yet ? From your map, there looks to be a lot of shared section, which is usually far from ideal in deign and will more than likely have restrictive barriers and gates. Who is making the decisions on this the city managers or the elected councillors ?
