Over 900 people have asked for the Liffey Cycle Route to be saved and kept on Dublin’s quays, in a campaign started by IrishCycle.com.
The petition — which can currently still be signed at https://my.uplift.ie — will be persented to the mannager of Dublin City Council and also highlighted to city councilors. The campaign to save the route is a localised action in the same vein as the “Cities fit for Cycling” campaign run by The Times in the UK, althought both are totally unconnected.
The petition states: “Keep the Liffey Cycle Route on Dublin’s quays — say no to a backstreet detour, yes to a Dutch-style two-way cycle path reclaiming part of the quays and a new riverside park. Option 6 is workable and the best route for the city.”
People who have signed the petition have the option of commenting, here’s a sample of the comments provided:
