Here’s how walking and cycling funding was spent and underspent in 2021

DATA: You can check the below spreadsheet to see how walking and cycling funding was spent — or underspent — in your area in 2021.

The spreadsheet was released by the National Transport Authority under Freedom of Information legislation. IrishCycle.com requested “a breakdown of the €309,216,333 walking and cycling infrastructure funding offered to councils via the NTA in 2021 covering an outline of each project which (1) received a funding allocation and (2) which project funding was used for or not.”

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

AOI = “Additional Outdoor Infrastructure” which was part of the Government’s Covid Response in 2021.

  1. Great work Cian! And it is instructive to look at the various Councils and the allocations and spend.
    But I know this might be jumped on by anti active travel groups, and I am sure these monies will no doubt be spent as the Active Travel teams gear up. We need to encourage them!
