Lucky Dublin City Council staff were delighted to get a site visit preview of the @royalgreenway Phase 2, from Sheriff Street to North Strand Road. They’re happy to report the new cycleway provides unique views of Dublin’s skyline, railways and canal. pic.twitter.com/sdmjNkYjxG— Dublin City Council – North City Centre (@DCCnorthcity) February 27, 2020
Earlier this month we reported that the route is due to be opened in May.
The above shots mainly focus on the ramp which will bring people walking and cycling from ground level along the canal to the level of North Strand Road where it crosses the canal.

The section of the route starts behind the Convention Centre Dublin. For the length of the route from there to the Northern Railway Line it runs as separate walking and cycle paths.
At the Northern Railway Line the paths combine into a shared ramp over another railway line and up onto the North Strand Road.
The image here shows a side view of the ramp with the Northren line to the left of the image and the road to the right:
