Liffey Cycle Route could be trialed this summer

Dublin's south quays

A cycle route along Dublin’s quays — called the Liffey Cycle Route — could be trialed this summer. A report is set to be presented to the next monthly council meeting in March.

Tonight, Cllr Gary Gannon tweeted: “Some interesting news from tonight’s [monthly council] meeting. @DubCityCouncil will bring a report to next months council meeting for a trial of the Liffey Cycle Route that would take place throughout the Summer. Some interesting decisions ahead for councillors.”

Cllr Marie Sherlock tweeted: “Lots of frustration expressed tonight at delay in #LiffeyCycleRoute and lots of support for trial at city council monthly meeting. Commitment to bring proposals of a trial to the March council meeting.”

Over 4,280 people have now signed the LiffeyCycle.com petition which seeks for the route to be trialed. It is supported by I Bike Dublin, the Dublin Cycling Campaign, Cyclist.ie, Dublin Commuter Coalition, and this website, IrishCycle.com.

More information on the trial as we get it.
