Liffey Cycle Route Design Options - Non Statutory Public Consultation

Closed 17 Apr 2015

Opened 19 Mar 2015


Dublin City Council is seeking feedback on its plans to provide an off-road cycle route along the River Liffey by Friday, 17th April 2015.

The ‘Liffey Corridor’ cycle route would run from the Phoenix Park to the 3-Arena in the Docklands.

 Four possible options are being considered:

· Option 1: A two-way route along the north quays. This would not see a reduction in the number of traffic lanes but a new section of boardwalk would be needed between Arran and Ellis Quay

· Option 2: A two-way route on the north quays with buses re-routed to a new public transport corridor on Benburb St (between Heuston Station and Ellis Quay)

· Option 3: A two-way north quays route with buses rerouted to the north of the Croppy Acre which would be extended down towards the Liffey

·  Option 4: A one-way route on each side of the Liffey. The cycle tracks would be alongside the buildings and bus and general traffic would not be effected

The four options can be seen in This can also be done at Dublin City Council’s Civic Offices on Wood Quay, Dublin 8 and at the Central (Ilac) Library and Dublin City Library & Archive, 138-144 Pearse Street.



What happens next

Dublin City Council will use this feedback to select a preferred route option for the cycle route. The preferred route will be subject to statutory consultation and planning processes
