The National Transport Authority has distributed the new National Cycle Manual to councils around Ireland, and it now replaces the old manual published in 2011.

...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 nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The manual has yet to be published online, the CycleManual.ie website version of the old manual has been replaced with a PDF of that manual.

A forward in the Manual states: “The Cycle Design Manual has been prepared by the National Transport Authority (NTA) and overseen by the Department of Transport. This manual replaces the previous National Cycle Manual, published by the NTA in 2011, which is now withdrawn.”

It is understood that the plan is adust the manual in the first 6-12 months based on feedback.

The NTA has also published three new documents — Roundabout Retrofit – Including Rapid Build Options, Rapid Build Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Front of School Improvements Advice Note, and Rapid Build Active Travel Facilities.


...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.
