Dublin’s newest public space, the long awaited Broadstone Plaza, opened earlier today. It means a shared walking and cycling link from Broadstone to Grangegorman is now fully open 24/7.
This link in turn links to Grangegorman Lower and to a time-restricted access across the TU Dublin campus to Stoneybatter.
Grangegorman Lower was also upgraded last year to include filtered permeability bollards which stopped rat running and increased the number of children cycling to school.
The Grangegorman Development Agency said: “The Broadstone Plaza is now open! This key pedestrian/cyclist access links Grangegorman to the wider city. It extends the existing route from Grangegorman Lower which is now open 24/7.”
Finally open! Dublin's best calm #activetravel route just got better.
