Fitzwilliam Cycle Route detailed design to be unveiled at public event

Detailed designs of the Fitzwilliam Cycle Route at a public information evening on Monday February 25, Dublin City Council said today.

Details of exactly how the planned protected junction will work should be made public at the event between 6.30pm-8pm at the Wood Quay venue.

The council said: “The proposed Fitzwilliam Cycle Route scheme comprises of a 1km cycle route extending from Leeson Street to Mount Street Lower along Fitzwilliam Place, Fitzwilliam Street and Merrion Square East. The existing road layout will be reconfigured to provide a parking protected cycle lane on both sides of the road delivering a cycle route that caters for cyclists of all ages and abilities.”

It said that the scheme will include the reconfiguration of car parking spaces, provide increased cycle parking and deliver pedestrian improvements.

It said: “Dublin City Council would like to invite members of the public to attend a presentation on the detailed design of the scheme, which has been developed with consideration of the non-statutory public consultation submissions received, on Monday 25th February from 6.30pm to 8pm in the Wood Quay Venue, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8.”
