Irish Cycle Facility of the Week

Above and below is part of a route made of Chapelizod Road and Conyngham Road along the Phoenix Park in Dublin. Plans are due to be released which are to change the route to a two-way segregated cycle path. Along the 3km of the park’s wall there’s only two vehicular entrances, so it is possibly a good candidate for two-way.

But the images show how badly an upgrade is needed.

This image from Street View shows how the apparent car parking spaces can only be used by partly using the dashed cycle lane.
