Plans for the Dodder Greenway in the South Dublin County Council area need to be improved to include better segregation between cycling and walking, a councillor has said.
“We want to make sure that the Dodder Greenway will be friendly for children, for people with disabilities and for all users. I think it needs to have much more delineation in the plans between pedestrians and cyclists,” said Cllr Dermot Looney (Social Democrats).
He said separated paths would allow cyclists to go a little bit faster while allowing pedestrians to feel safer. He made the comments in a video exploring the route, see below or on Facebook.
The South Dublin County Council section includes the areas of Kiltipper, Tallaght, Old Bawn, Firhouse, Templeogue, Terenure and Rathfarnham. The rest of the route to Grand Canal Dock runs in other council areas and are part of different planning processes.
