The Liffey Cycle Route combined with bus priority measures are designated as part of the Pathfinder project and an advancement of the project is also expected to be part of the forthcoming revision of the City Centre Transport Plan.

In the shorter term, a written update to councillors ahead of their monthly meeting last night outlined how the council is to issue a tender to seek a company to build the two-way cycle path by the end of September.

The report said: “The tender for engagement of Contractors for the Liffey Cycle Route Scheme from Georges Quay to Aston Quay is expected to be issued in Q3 2023.”

The council also said that the work on the more minor interventions on Eden Quay “are currently progressing well” — these measures mainly include pained cycle lanes between bus stops and traffic lanes, with the removal of the slip-like turn before Custom House.
