Dublin City Council is proposing to provide improved walking and cycling facilities from Suir to Thomas Street.

Suir Street Map

Dublin City Council has developed a design for Interim (temporary pending permanent) walking & cycling measures along Grand Canal View, St James Linear Park, James Walk, Forbes Lane, Marrowbone Lane and Thomas Court. These measures are interim until a permanent scheme is put in place.

The main aim of the scheme is to provide a safer environment for walking and cycling. This is especially important to improve walking and cycle access to the Coombe Hospital, St James’
Hospital, Rialto Luas stop, Fatima Luas stop and a number of schools in the area such as Canal Way Educate Together, CBS James Street, St James Primary School and Mater Dei.

Protection of the cycle lanes on James Walk and Marrowbone Lane (Robert Street South to Summer Street South) will be provided by bolt on kerbs/bollards and flexi bollards.  New road markings, cycle logos and signage will be installed across the full route of the interim scheme. The will be new shared cycle/traffic lanes on Grand Canal View, Forbes Lane, Marrowbone Lane (Forbes Lane to Robert Street South) and Thomas Court and a share with care section through St James Linear Park.
