Consultation ends tonight on contra-flow cycle track near Dublin Castle

Consultation ends tonight (Tuesday) on a contra-flow cycle track and upgrade of the cycle route west and north of Dublin Castle.

The project — called the Werburgh Street Cycle Route Phase 1 — is being progressed by Dublin City Council and funded by the National Transport Authority.

You can fill out a survey and find further details on the council’s website. A cropped version of the project drawings are shown below.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The project will include a contra-flow cycle lane and with flow lane sharing with motorists on Cork Hill and Castle Street.

Around the corner, it will also include a new contra-flow cycle lane on Werburgh Street, partly protecting the existing with-flow southbound cycle lane on Werburgh Street and that continuing for a short section into Bride Street. These streets join up with New Bride Street and Heytesbury Street. It’s unclear the extent of these which will be partly or otherwise segregated in further schemes.

The existing northbound cycle lane on Bride Street will not be linked straight away to the contra-flow lane on Werburgh Street as the councils said it will take more time to change the layout of the junction between both streets and add traffic signals.

For those unfamiliar with the street names, the streets mentioned above run parallel to the interlinked streets which start George’s Street and stretches to Camden Street.



...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
