A near-1km two-way cycle path is planned between the Ha’penny Bridge and the Talbot Memorial Bridge at the start of the Docklands, Dublin City Council has confirmed.
The project is part of the Interim Liffey Cycle Route and also part of the Dublin City Centre Pathfinder programme, which aims to rapidly reallocate space to sustainable transport as part of Ireland’s climate commitments.
The project has funding from the 2023 NTA funding allocation of €1.8m for the Liffey route.
The council’s Active Travel Programme Office said it was progressing with the next phases of the Interim Liffey Cycle Route in two sections on the north and south queys between the core city centre and the Docklands. The other project is the more minor changes on Eden Quay.
The southside section will be the most substantial of the two projects, covering 0.8km and is likely to be more segregated given that it’s a two-way cycle path.
The new two-way cycle path on the south quays would link to the existing two-way cycle path on City Quay and also to the contra-flow cycle track on Talbot Memorial Bridge which leads to Busáras.
The council said that the cycle route will include Georges Quay to Crampton Quay-Southern Quays Along George’s, Burgh, Aston and Crampton Quay.
A spokesperson for Dublin City Council said: “From Talbot Memorial Bridge to the Ha’penny Bridge a two-way cycle track is proposed along the riverside. Preliminary designs have being prepared which are currently under review. Engagement with key stakeholders is also ongoing. These drawings will also be uploaded to the webpage when they are finalised.”
