Feedback wanted on plan for “cycle network for Ireland” by Friday deadline

— CycleConnects will classify routes and influence what projects are funded first.

Public consultation on CycleConnects — a plan for what the National Transport Authority calls a “comprehensive cycle network for Ireland” — is due to end tomorrow, Friday, November 18, 2022.

...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...

The extended deadline allows people to reply up to 11:59pm on Friday night online at consult.nationaltransport.ie or by emailing activetravel@nationaltransport.ie.

The network plan consultation covers areas outside of the Greater Dublin Area (GDA) —Dublin, Meath, Kildare, and Wicklow — which already has a network plan which was subject to consultation recently.

The consultation page shows a draft of route maps across Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, as well as larger towns across and rural areas in counties outside the GDA.
