Dublin Bikes – confirmation of works to begin!

Since October last year, I have sought on four separate occasions, an update from Dublin City Council on the delivery of the Dublin Bikes Stations in and around Grangegorman, following the allocation of €1.5m in funding by local Minister, Paschal Donohoe T.D. in Budget 2015. Huge work has been done by a small number of Council officials to finalise locations for the installation of 15 stations.

Works were to begin later this month but I have now been informed that the timeline for construction and installation has slipped to the second week of January. This delay is caused by the difficulty in achieving an acceptable design solution for stations 1-3 at Grangegorman Lower, given the complexity of traffic management changes necessary to accommodate all users in this area into the future (such as taxi, bus, mobility impaired parking, etc) at the college campus. Between now and mid January, the Council will undertake Road Safety Audits of the remaining preferred sites.

Therefore, the current proposed locations are as follows:

1.           Grangegorman Lower No1, Dublin 7

2.            Grangegorman Lower No2, Dublin 7

3.            Grangegorman Lower No3, Dublin 7

4.            Rathdown Road, Dublin 7

5.            Charleville Road, Dublin 7

6.            Avondale Road, Dublin 7

7.            Phibsborough Road, Dublin 7

8.            George’s Lane, Dublin 7

9.            Western Way, Dublin 7

10.          North Circular Road, Drumcondra, Dublin 1

11.          Mountjoy Square East, Dublin 1

12.          Killarney Street, Dublin 1

13.          Buckingham Street Lower, Dublin 1 (West side)

14.          Merrion Square South, Dublin 2

15.          Wilton Terrace, Dublin 2

16.          Buckingham Street Lower, Dublin 1 (East side) [contingency]
