Engineers Ireland is to host a free on CycleConnects, which is billed as ‘Ireland’s Cycle Network’, on Wednesday, October 26 at 4.30pm.
The webinar will cover how consultants AECOM and the National Transport Authority have, over the last year, developed a cycle network covering plan spanning 22 counties and 57 urban areas outside the Greater Dublin Area.
Speakers are to include Paul McGartoll from the National Transport Authority, and Hugh McCarthy and Rachel Farrell from AECOM.
In its description of the event, Engineers Ireland notes: “In this talk, the NTA will highlight what CycleConnects looks to achieve and why it aligns with national strategies and objectives. AECOM will then outline the process of how this was undertaken such as conducting international research on cycle networks, what data was collected and challenges/opportunities arising from developing a cycle network in each county.”

The CycleConnects public consultation is open until November 11, 2023 at consult.nationaltransport.ie.
