Shared walking and cycling bridges along the River Dodder at Templeogue and Bushy Park should be open by the end of this month or soon after.
Bridges are part of the River Dodder Greenway project which South Dublin County Council is building.
A spokesperson for South Dublin County Council said: “The bridges are due to be offered back [from the contractor] to SDCC at the end of June.”
They added: “The remaining items are some minor snags but mainly the connection and commissioning of the public lights which are dependent on the ESB connections team. Once taken in charge by SDCC they will be opened to the public.”

Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.
There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!
Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.
I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.
The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
