R132 Connectivity project- Public Consultation
Fingal Cycling Campaign is happy that Fingal County Council have produced such an ambitious plan for reallocation of road space on the R132. This project delivers extensive protected cycle lanes, along with new crossings and safer pedestrian facilities on a road which to date is hostile to cycling. We are confident that these additions will enable many more people of all ages and abilities to choose cycling or walking for everyday journeys and we believe these improvements are in line with many of the Council’s stated objectives in the 2017-2023 development plan. We have raised some design concerns with the layout of the junction choice being recommended by the NTA as we see this junction as not delivering the key safety benefits of the Dutch junction on which it is based. Overall Fingal Cycling Campaign welcomes many aspects of this design and there are some nice cycling and walking features within the project and we have collated this below as a list of concerns and recommendations made by members of the Dublin Cycling Campaign who have contributed their local knowledge of the fingal area as well as their general points of view on how the scheme can be improved.
The consultation closes online on the 18th December at 11:59pm. Click on link and please feel free to use our submission as a template: https://consult.fingal.ie/en/consultation/r132-connectivity-project-non-…
