Nearly 80 companies back call for a segregated cycle routes in Dublin

78 companies — from large to small, and international to local — have backed the CyclingWorks call to build a network of segregated cycle routes in Dublin.

“There’s a total of 78 companies and 3rd level education institutions signed up so far. Is your employer of place of education one of these seeking safer conditions for your commute?” CyclingWorks Dublin said on Facebook on Friday.

The companies include CPL, CBRE, Codema, Siemens Healthineers, The Dean Hotel, the Academy Plaza Hotel, ShinAwil, William Fry, the Radisson Royal Hotel Dublin, Goodbody, Alstom, BearingPoint, Indeed, and The Ireland edition of The Times and Sunday Times.

A template letter for the companies, designed to send to the Minister for Transport, states: “The kerb protected cycle lanes through Dublin City will help us attract and retain the employees our business needs to continue to thrive. They will also make Dublin a more attractive city in which to build and run our business. The planned cycling network is, on balance,  great for our business and for Dublin.  Please make sure these plans are delivered, without delay.”
