                                                                 (Proposed Scheme on Fitzwilliam Quay)

The Fitzwilliam Quay to Londonbridge Road Scheme is part of the Dublin City Council (DCC) core Active Travel Network, and is funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA). Fitzwilliam Quay to Londonbridge Road has been identified as a suitable location for interim measures along the Dodder Greenway corridor. It will provide 0.5km of walking and cycling facilities from Fitzwilliam Quay to Londonbridge Road.

About the Scheme

  • A signalised junction is proposed at the Bridge Street / Fitzwilliam Quay junction with new pedestrian and cyclist crossings across Bridge Street and Fitzwilliam Quay.
  • A 3m wide, two-way cycle lane will be provided on the western side of Fitzwilliam Quay, separating cyclists from traffic by way of segregation kerbs.
  • A 3m wide, two-way cycle lane will be provided along the existing green space outside the western wall of Dodder Park.
  • A quiet street (mixing of cyclists and vehicles) will be provided along the existing road section which links the Pump House Apartments to Londonbridge Road by way of road markings.

Scheme Benefits

  • Provide quality, protected cycling facilities to cater for all ages and abilities along the Dodder River corridor 
  • Facilitate a more active lifestyle for all ages bringing multiple benefits for physical and mental wellbeing
  • Contribute to a reduction in transport emissions in line with the objectives of the Climate Action Plan by encouraging modal shift to active travel use
