The Sandyford Cycle Route (Kilgobbin to Drummartin Link Rd Section) forms part of Radial Route 11 in the Greater Dublin Area (GDA) Cycle Network Plan. Works to be carried out as part of the proposed pedestrian and cycle scheme include the following:

  • Development of a new two-way cycle track on the east side of Drummartin Link Road and on part of the west side of Kilgobbin Road up to Hillcrest Road
  • Upgrade of the Drummartin Link Road and Blackthorn Drive junction near the Beacon Hospital.
  • Scheme tie in from Drummartin Link Road to the proposed Bracken Road link road.
  • Reconfiguration of the roundabout over the M50 to provide pedestrian and cycle facilities through the roundabout to link to the proposed routes on Drummartin Link Road and Kilgobbin Road.

Good progress is being made as shown in the aerial photograph of new footpath and  cycle track at Drummartin Link Rd.  Works are 100% funded by the National Transport Authority.
