There is no funding for the permanent Fitzwilliam Cycle Route, according to officials in Dublin City Council.
The interim project effectively included changing perpendicular car parking bays into parallel parking which acts as a buffer to cycle lanes, a standard set up in many countries.
Most of the surface of the cycle lane is now what was parking lanes and the street has not been resurfaced since.
An update report to councillors issued ahead of the monthly meeting on Monday, said: The Fitzwilliam Cycle Route scheme will deliver 1km of cycling facilities linking Leeson Street Lower and Adelaide Road to Merion Square. The Project also includes a refurbishment of the Adelaide Road Traffic Island.”
It said: “The tender competition and Final Business Case for the scheme has been completed and a preferred contractor identified. Funding for this project is currently unavailable.”
The report was dated December 18 and signed off by Andy Walsh, director of the active travel office in the council and John Flanagan, assistant chief executive and city engineer.
