Raheny to Kilbarrack Walking and Cycling Interim Scheme

Closed 26 Jan 2023

Opened 16 Dec 2022

Overview

Dublin City Council is proposing to provide improved walking and cycling facilities along the Howth Road from Raheny to Kilbarrack.

Dublin City Council will deliver the Active Travel Network through a series of infrastructural projects over the next nine years. The Active Travel Network will grow from its existing 10km to a connected network of 310km across the city. This will offer a safer, inclusive and connected Active Travel Network that is sustainable. These projects will take some time to plan and design. In the meantime, it is proposed to design and implement interim schemes on these routes where it is feasible.

The Raheny to Kilbarrack Scheme has been identified as a suitable route for Interim measures. It will deliver a 1.75km cycle route along the Howth Road which extends from Raheny Village (junction of Howth Road, Station Road and Main Street) to the junction of Howth Road and James Larkin Road.

The interim scheme will be implemented in two phases:

Phase 1: This phase commences at Raheny Village (junction of Howth Road, Main Street and Station Road) and continues along the Howth Road for
approximately 1km and finishes at Foxfield Road. It is proposed to use bollard protected and parking protected cycle tracks along this section.

Phase 2: The remaining 0.75km section of Howth Road will continue on from Phase 1 at Foxfield Road until it ends at the approach to the junction of Howth Road and James Larkin Road. Due to the narrower road width at this section of the Howth Road it is proposed to use temporary kerbs and flexible bollards on the southern side of the road and on the northern side the cycle track will be off-road adjacent to the existing footpath.

Refer to the information leaflet and drawings at the end of this page for additional information on the scheme.
