Parnell Square contra-flow to be extend to Blessington Street

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.

...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...

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.”

...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.
