dlr response to Covid-19 – Cycling Schemes & Projects

dlr County
Intro Text 

The cycling schemes and projects listed below will form part of the County-wide plan of temporary measures to address the challenges in the public realm resulting from Covid-19 related to public health and safety, mobility and to support the recovery of the local economy.

 

Protected Cycle Schemes

A new form of quick-build ‘protected cycle scheme’ is being developed by the NTA using a kerb upstand for segregation. Two routes have been identified in the County to pilot this new form of segregation. Should these pilot schemes be successful then it is likely that there would be further roll out of such measures on other routes around the County. The benefit of the new form of segregation is that the kerb upstand can be installed relatively quickly. It is expected that these works would commence in June and that Councillors will be provided further information on the initiative in the Dundrum Area Committee Meeting on 3rd June. The two initial pilot locations are:

  • Goatstown Road
  • Benildus Avenue

  

Segregation for Cyclists at Junctions

The Council is planning to install flexible bollards at a number of junctions around the County with a view to providing segregation for cyclists approaching junctions. The initial junctions where light segregation will be provided using flexible bollards are shown below, and maps are provided in the 'Related Documents' section on this page. Works on installing these measures will start next week and we are examining other locations for the roll out of similar measures.
