The deadly double left turning slip turn at Liberty Hall heading towards the back of Customs House is no more.
The left turn slip lane — which add risk for pedestrians and people cycling — went from Eden Quay to Beresford Place.
The new layout is a bit of a strange one in terms of cycling — so, the verdict might be out on how it works yet, but it would be hard to be worse than what was there before.
The section of Eden Quay had one of the longest exposed cycle lanes in the Dublin City Council area where you didn’t know if motorists were going to try to zoom past you from behind or in front of you or possibly both at the same time.
The slip turn was also deadly for pedestrians with the most recent death understood to be within the last year.
Slip turns are recommended against by safety and design guidance documents which state that there is little extra benefit for motorists compared to the extra risk for pedestrians and people cycling.
As reported in February last, the new layout will still include buses pulling into and out of the bus stops across the cycle lane for most of the distance of Eden Quay.
