Proposed city centre 'parking protected' cycle lanes could be on the horizon

If the development goes ahead it will cost in the region of €1.1million

In April 2016, a new initiative was proposed to improve road safety for cyclists - informed

The scheme would see new cycle lanes positioned between pavements and parked cars in the south Georgian core in Dublin 2.

The concept, known as Parking Protected Cycle Lanes, would be sponsored by the National Transport Authority (NTA).

Parked cars, previously considered a hazard to cyclists, could protect them from traffic as cyclists move between the pavement and parked cars.

Today, Dublin City Council has announced that they intend to seek funding of up to €1.1million from the National Transport Authority to develop the new so called Georgian Parkway.

The road safety experiment will run from the canal at Leeson Street Bridge to Merrion Square, using Fitzwilliam Place and Fitzwilliam Street.

The scheme has proved successful in other cities such as Copenhagen and Montreal and has recently been tested in New York.

And if the Georgian parkway is a success, it could be wheeled out to link many other squares and parks in the capital.

According to the Irish Times, Engineers are now in the process of confirming with the NTA and the development should cost between €786,000 and €1.1 million depending on the design chosen.
