Liffey Cycle Route – Update

At the February meeting of the City Council, I sought an update from Owen Keegan as to the current status of the proposed Liffey Cycle Route. In seeking that update, I asked the Chief Executive to share with me where the review currently being undertaken by the National Transport Authority stands and when does he envisage a report being circulated to Councillors.

Many Stoneybatter residents have been in touch with me seeking details of the report and when the review is expected to be completed.

Mr. Keegan responded to my enquiries this evening stating that the National Transport Authority has commissioned a consultant to review the many varied proposals for the Liffey Cycle Route. The Chief Executive anticipates that this review will be completed in April. Mr. Keegan and officials in the Transportation Department intend “to proceed with the scheme as soon as the option selection process is concluded.”

In response to the information I secured from the City Council, I have asked that the consultants undertaking this review to come before the North Inner City Area Committee, which I chair, so that local Councillors on behalf of Stoneybatter and other north-west inner city residents can tease out the results contained in any final report.
