Dublin City Council’s recently opened Parnell Square East contra-flow cycle track is to be extended to Blessington Street.
The extended contra-flow route will allow people traveling northbound to cycle more directly from O’Connell Street to Phibsborough and beyond. The information was contained in the COVID-19 Mobility Measures Update memo dated 16 March to Dublin City councillors.
When the Parnell Square East contra-flow was announced back in September, Dublin City Council had said it would be extended to Blessington Street if the Parnell Street East section was successful.
The memo this week said: “Planters are due to be delivered at the end of March and when installed will significantly improve the appearance of the [Parnell Square East] Contraflow.”
It added: “Works to extend the Contraflow up Blessington Street are anticipated to take place later this month.”
