Seven years of pre-planning — the planning stage of a project before a firm plan is developed — is to be marked with birthday cake at the monthly family-friendly Liffey Cycle Route protest tomorrow.
The Dublin Cycling Campaign’s monthly group cycle along Dublin’s quays is set to kick off at 11.00am tomorrow (Sunday) from Grand Canal Square in the Docklands.
As IrishCycle.com reported last month, substantial progress on the project is expected to be made before Christmas.
“Please join us once again for our monthly cycle along Dublin’s Quays as we continue to highlight the lack of progress on the Liffey Cycle Route. This family-friendly group cycle highlights the lack of progress on the Liffey Cycle Route – a proposed safe cycleway along the Liffey Quays from the Phoenix Park to the Point Village,” the campaign said on its website.
“November 2018 marks the 7th anniversary of the first public announcement of the Liffey Cycle Route, way back in 2011. At the time Dublin City Council predicted that the project would be completed by 2017. As things stand, a final design for the route has yet to be chosen.”
The campaign added: “To mark the 7th anniversary of the announcement we’re going to host a 7th Birthday Party in Grand Canal Dock, complete with a giant birthday cake – so arrive hungry!”
