Artist’s impression images displayed at Velo-City — an international cycling conference taking place in Dublin this week — shows a glimpse of what the planned Clonskeagh cycle route upgrade could look like.
A recent cycle project list update for the council showed that work has been re-started on the project’s planning which was paused around the time of the Luas Cross City tram works, which required the focus of city council staff.
The images are displayed at Dublin City Council stand at the Velo-City main hall. The images are alongside other images but, as far as this website knows, the Clonskeagh route images were not previously made public.
From Dame Street southbound the route was supposed to take in both George’s Street and some of the smaller streets to the west of it such as South William Street. George’s Street has since supposed to be part of the BusConnects project.
South of South William Street the route is supposed to go by Harcourt Luas Stop and then onto Ranelagh and Clonskeagh.

Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.
There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!
Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.
I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.
The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
