Cork City Council closes cycle tracks with “No communication, no advance warning, no updates”

— UPDATE ON SUNDAY: Barriers removed, see below.

Cork City Council today closed new and old cycle tracks on Albert Quay with “No communication, no advance warning, no updates”.

Cork Cycling Campaign said: “Even the old existing cycle lanes are being closed off. No communication, no advance warning, no updates.”

As of 9pm, Cork City Council has yet to respond to a request for comment made before lunchtime today.

UPDATED: The barriers were removed at some stage between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, without any explanation:

I am editor of IrishCycle.com and have reported on and commented on cycling in Ireland for over a decade. My background is in journalism -- I have a BA in Journalism from DCU and HDip in Print Journalism from BCFE. I wrote about cycling for national newspapers, and then started CyclingInDublin.com for overflow stories. Later the website was re-branded to reflect a more national focus.
