First images of bendy detour for cycling in Rathmines under BusConnects plan

category dublin | worker & community struggles and protests | news report author Tuesday December 11, 2018 21:10author by Irish Cycle Report this post to the editors

First images showing the detour the National Transport Authority plans to provide for cycling after they remove cycle lanes in Rathmines, the most used arterial cycle route in Dublin.

As IrishCycle.com website reported previously, traffic counts show that in the AM peak last year, there was 1,637 bicycles and 1,325 cars/van, even with the traffic counts happening in November.

But the NTA is suggesting to remove cycle lanes as a bus priority measure as part of the infrastructure elements of BusConnects. Consultation on the route is expected next year. Consultation has already started on four routes on the north side. ( http://irishcycle.com/2018/11/15/busconnects-bus-lane-plans-leave...hind/ )

The Census shows that more commuters who live off the Rathmines Road, Rathgar Road, Harold’s Cross Road, Ranelagh Road, and Sandyford Road routes use their bicycles than get the bus.

The idea of removing cycle lanes on the Rathmines Road has even prompted Cllr Dermot Lacey (Labour) and Cllr Patrick Costello (Greens) to pick up IrishCycle.com’s suggestion of using bus gates and upgrading the cycle route in Rathmines to cycle paths — the councillor had proposed it should be debating at the local area council meeting.

The new images were posted today by a member of the public who has been shown the plans and photos of them were posted on a Boards.ie thread on BusConnects.

The detailed drawings show a far more bendy route than previous outline of the detour:
