We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes.

We Asked

The Liffey Cycle Route is a Primary Route in the Greater Dublin Area Cycle Network Plan published by the National Transport Authority (NTA) in December 2013, and as such is a key objective of the NTA and Dublin City Council (DCC). It is one of a number of routes being developed by DCC as part of its overall 470km of safer cycling routes suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities.

The scheme will deliver pedestrian improvements, a high quality cycle route that will meet the requirements of cyclists of varied experience and will provide an optimal balance of provision between the various road users along the route. The design will have particular regard to any engineering, architectural and environmental constraints along the route.

In 2017 DCC and the NTA agreed that the NTA would undertake a review of all design options considered to date and identify any new design options.

In March 2019 the NTA presented an Emerging Preferred Design to DCC.

This Emerging Preferred Design includes the following

•           The existing road layout will be reconfigured to provide a one-way segregated cycle track on the north and south quays, located on the building side from the Phoenix Park to O Donovan Rossa Bridge where it then crosses to the river side of the road to Matt Talbot Memorial Bridge,

•           Provision of boardwalks at various locations,

•           Upgrade of junctions to provide pedestrian and cyclist improvements,

•           Public realm improvements and

•           Improvements to existing traffic signal operational infrastructure.

Dublin City Council carried out a non-statutory public consultation from 2nd May 2019 to 6th June 2019. We requested the views of the public and interested parties on all design aspects of the scheme.

You Said

425 submissions were received as part of the non-statutory public consultation process conducted from 2nd May 2019 to 6th June 2019. All the received submissions are contained in the Appendix document which is available below.

Scheme Update

Comments and observations received will be considered as the scheme design progresses.

Following extensive internal DCC consultation, key areas which require scoping prior to the engagement of an engineering service provider have been identified, DCC is currently progressing these scoping exercises. This information along with the comments received as part of the non-statutory public consultation will help in fully defining the scope of the scheme. This will form the basis for appointing a design team in Q2 2020.
