Despite the progress being made in implementing a temporary Liffey Cycle route, I have continued to seek updates on the progress being undertaken by Dublin City Council to advance the completion of the interim scheme.
The Chief Executive and officials from the Traffic and Transportation Department have responded to my representations by advising the progress that has been on both sides of the Liffey.
With regards to the North Quays:
• Interim Measures have been implemented on Parkgate Street, Frank Sherwin Bridge, Wolfe Tone Quay, Sarsfield Quay, Ellis Quay, Arran Quay, Inns Quay, Ormond Quay Upper, Grattan Bridge, Ormond Quay Lower and Bachelors Walk.
• Designs for Eden Quay are at an advanced stage and implementation will commence in Quarter 1, 2021.
In terms of the South Quays:
• Tenders for the reconfiguration of two major junctions on the South Quays as part of the interim Liffey Cycle Route have been issued, Dublin City Council intends to appoint contractor(s) to carry out the necessary construction works in December 2020 with construction works commencing in Quarter 1, 2021.
• Designs for Burgh Quay and Georges Quay are at an advanced stage and implementation will commence in Quarter 1, 2021.
The Chief Executive anticipates that the interim Liffey Cycle Route will be fully complete by the end of March 2021.
I hope this information is of assistance to you. But if you have questions or queries arising from the details above, please email me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com.
