Residents of Rathfarnham and Templeogue are being asked by South Dublin Council Council to choose between a number of projects to get a share of €300,000 in funding, including a Traffic School that school children could visit.
The ‘Learn to Cycle Track’ would be placed in Tymon Park. The council said it would “Create a learn to cycle safely track within Tymon Park where children can learn to cycle in a safe and protected environment.” It would cost €100,000.
At haveyoursay.southdublin.ie, residents can choose this and a combination of other projects such as playgrounds up to a combination of €300,000.
In the meanwhile, earlier this year, Waterford City and County Council opened what it called Ireland’s first “learn to cycle’ park:
The only other cycling-related option on offer for South Dublin Council residents to vote is a €5,000 bicycle pump in Templeogue Village which the council describes as a “bicycle pump machine in Templeogue Village for the cyclists who pass through the village.”
