Cycle route design and construction ongoing in South Dublin County

Planning, design and construction work is ongoing on a number of cycle routes in the mid-west and south-west areas of Co Dublin, a reply from South Dublin County Council to Cllr Dermot Looney has confirmed.

The update given by South Dublin County Council is as follows:

  1. Would be nice in this day and age if we just had easy access to this information online rather than having to have a sympathetic councillor request it.

    Any chance of an update for other areas?

  2. I can’t wait to see the recommendation for Walkinstown Roundabout. I’ll be pleasantly surprised if it doesn’t involve cyclists avoiding the roundabout itself, going down every exit and waiting patiently until all the cars are done moving before they cross each one.
