6 cycle lane projects planned for Dublin 15 area over the next 5 years.
At a recent council meeting Cllr O’Mahony asked about plans for cycle lanes in the Castleknock local area. The Chief executive replied that within the next 5 years there are plans for 6 different projects at various stages of planning from feasibility, planning, design and construction phases.
Fingal Cycling Campaign has recently published its statement on the poor quality of item 6 “Snugborough road interchange”. https://www.dublincycling.com/cycling/final-designs-snugborough-road-int… We have also made a submission to the recent consultation on Kellystown road which had some concerning designs that would increase traffic flow for vehicles and create left hook danger zones for cyclists. https://www.dublincycling.com/cycling/diswellstown-road-upgarde-designed… There has been many delays to the Royal canal greenway project. Hopefully 2021 will show greater speed in applying resources to these projects with new staff announcements and active travel depts within Fingal County Council. Although it is concerning that the projects that we have already made submissions too are of medium to poor quality.
