New Lanesborough Park development will have kissing gates at main entrance

Fingal County Council has launched a public consultation for the redevelopment of Lanesborurgh Park. Fingal Cycling Campaign welcomes this development but unfortunately access will be restricted for non standard bicycle users such as cargo bikes to enter the park. There will be nice cycling infrastructure within the park and 44 bicycle parking stands. Please make a submission and ask Fingal County Council to reconsider the entrance designs.…
