New Cycling and Walking Measures in Dublin 8

New walking and cycling measures are being developed in Dublin 8 by Dublin City Council. The changes will take place along Grand Canal View, James Walk, Forbes Lane, St James Linear Park, Marrowbone Lane and Thomas Court.

The aim of the development is to facilitate a safer environment for cycling and walking. It also will improve access to The Coombe hospital and St James Hospital, as well as to Rialto Luas stop and a number of schools in the area.

They will achieve this using bolt on kerbs, and flexi bollards on James Walk and Marrowbone Lane. New signage, cycle logos and road markings will also be developed by Dublin City Council across the route. New shared cycle lanes will be put in place on Grand Canal View, Forbes Lane, Marrowbone Lane and Thomas Court; and a share with care section will extend through St James Linear Park.

This share with care route is included in the design for St James Linear Park; a 4-5m wide route stretching from Rialto Bridge to Suir Road Bridge. The signage outlines space for pedestrians and cyclists to use the route.

The measures are interim solutions meant to improve safety in the environment for cyclists and pedestrians. They are part of a more robust and permanent scheme which is coming in future.

Residents who wish to give feedback and comment on the proposals can e-mail: (using Suir Road to Thomas Street in the subject bar)
