Cuffe welcomes new plans for Liffey Cycle Route


The Green Party has welcomed the publication by Dublin City Council and the NTA of a new plan for a cycle route along the Liffey Quays. The plans will be discussed by Dublin City Council’s Transportation Strategic Policy Committee at a meeting in City Hall at 3pm this afternoon, April 3rd.

Green Party MEP candidate for Dublin Cllr Ciarán Cuffe, who is chair of the city’s Transportation Strategic Policy Committee, said:

“I’m delighted that we now have a new plan for the Liffey Cycle Route linking the Phoenix Park and Dublin Bay.

“The scheme isn’t perfect, and has had to make compromises, but I’m hoping that this latest plan prepared by the National Transport Authority’s consultants will get the green light from the Transportation Committee so that we can move towards construction.

“People are crying out for segregated bike lanes that will make it safer for cyclists young and old to travel safely along the Liffey Quays. Let’s hope we can now move these plans forward to construction.”
