Cyclists have thanked Gardai for taking action over motorcyclists using the cycle lane which was upgraded after the death of Donna Fox in a collision with a truck last year.
Flexi bollards were installed along the cycle lane at the junction and the cycling flow along the junction was highlighted after the death of Donna, who was killed in a collision with a turning truck when she was cycling at the junction last year. Although, the pedestrian guardrails — which have been linked to cyclists’ deaths — have yet to be removed from the junction.
The @gardatraffic account tweeted on Thursday: “DMR Traffic carried out operation at junction of Seville Place & Sheriff Street Upper after complaint of motorcycles using dedicated cycle lane.”
