Section of Camden St Upper gets protected cycle track

A section of Camden St Upper and a shorter section of South Richmond Street outside an AIB branch, are the latest bits of street Dublin City Council has installed orcas and bollards on, in this case protecting an existing cycle track.

Campaign group I Bike Dublin, which has held a large number of cycle lane protection protests across the city, including a number at this location, said: “This is a wonderful day. Thank you Dublin City Council!”

“We ran 3 lane protections here last summer — this belongs to every one of you who stood on the line as buses whizzed by,” the group said on Twitter.

They added: “Kudos too to Dublin Cycling Campaign who’ve pursued this through their own campaigning and Cllrs who’ve advocated.”
