As reported recently, a new study by Trinity College Dublin found that the combination of limited space, crossing the tram tracks at a shallow angle and pressure from motorists increases the chances of cyclists falling off their bikes at tram tracks
This video shows how to use the route which allows people cycling to avoid mixing with buses, taxis and trams while crossing tram tracks at a shallow angle while travelling from College Street to College Green:
This is the movement to get onto the two-way cycle path:
The Cycle Network plans for Dublin outline how the route could be extended — these changes could be done with simple fixes which mainly include signs, but there’s no sign of quick action here. Dublin City Council allowing these movements in both directions would make the College Green cycle path a lot more connected and useful.
ADDED: As it’s been pointed out by a reader, the new design actually makes things worse for people heading northbound — you used to be able to head out of Church Lane (top purple arrow) and join the two-way cycle path and now that’s been blocked off:
