People cycling on a main cycle route along Dublin Bay in Clontarf could be told to yield to pedestrians and a car park entrance which cross the cycle path, if the recommendations of a report to city councillors is approved.
Being told to yield to those crossing a main route is different to the norm where side roads and paths yield to the main flow of walking, cycling or motor traffic.
The cycle path is one of the only sections of the Sutton to Sandycove cycle route along the city’s bay to be built. The new recommendations are part of a review of the Clontarf section of the route was undertaken to reduce conflicts between people walking and cycling.
It was reported that it was originally suggested using Dutch cycle path speed ramps before it was found that these were for mopeds rather than bicycles.
The report by the transport and environment section of Dublin City Council also recommends new paths to segregate walking and cycling, and closing one car park.
