Campaigners call for support of Liffey Cycle Route this Sunday 10th Sept

category dublin | environment | event notice author Thursday September 07, 2017 17:05author by cyclist - IrishCycle.com Report this post to the editors

Cycle planned for this Sunday, September 10.

Anybody who wants to show their support for the proposed segregated Liffey Cycle Route are asked to cycle from the Phoenix Park to the Docklands this Sunday.

The cycle is ahead of the Dublin City Council transport committee meeting later this month which is expected to deal with choosing Option 7 which keeps the cycle route on the quays or Option 8 which diverts cycling into a boardwalk and add a number of conflicts with pedestrians. Campaigners are hoping Option 7 is chosen, but it will require diverting motorists off a section of the quays

The cycle of the quays, organised by the Dublin Cycling Campaign, begins at 11am at the Wellington Monument in the Phoenix Park and travels along the north quays to the Samuel Beckett Bridge. The campaign said today that the cycle will be marshalled and supported by Garda Traffic Corps and Dublin Cycling Campaign marshals.

People will then be invited to cycle to Phibsborough for refreshments. Phizzfest and local residents groups in Phibsborough will host an “on-street celebration” with refreshments outside Bang Bang café on Leinster Street.

The campaign for the route has gained the support of Conal Keaney, a Dublin hurler and footballer, and business entrepreneur. He said: “This envisaged cycle route will make a major statement by Dublin City about a sustainable transport future for the City. The proposed segregated route from the Phoenix Park down along the historic spine of the River Liffey will be a great attraction, for commuters, leisure cyclists, and tourists alike, and has the power to transform this area of the City.”

Kieran Ryan of the Dublin Cycling Campaign said: “‘The latest CSO figures show that many short journeys that are presently made by car could easily be made by bicycle. Building routes such as this proposed Liffey Cycle Route will encourage commuters and travellers generally to leave the car behind and switch to a sustainable transport mode, and in turn help to reduce congestion. It could be a win-win situation.”

NOTE: This event starts at 11am on Sunday Sept 10th at the Wellington Monument in the Phoenix Park
