We Asked, You Said, We Did

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

We asked

In response to submissions received as part of the Strand Road Cycle Trial which related to Beach Road, Dublin City Council produced a layout on Beach Road that is as per Strand Road with one lane of outbound traffic, a 2 way cycle lane using what is currently the outbound traffic lane and no changes to the footpath.

Dublin City Council sought to gather feedback to find out for this specific change to the Strand Road Cycle Route Trial. We asked:

"Would you prefer this revised option with one way for traffic with the footpaths retained and the cycle lane at road level on Beach Road between Sean Moore Road and Marine Drive or the original option with two way vehicular traffic and the cycle lane using the footpath?"

“Do you have any concerns about this proposal?”
