Contractor to be selected for Phase 3 of Royal Canal Greenway

We’re closing in on eight years since planning permission for the Royal Canal Pedestrian and Cycle Greenway was granted by Dublin City Councillors. While Phases 1 and 2 are open and works have been advanced on various parts of Phase 4, linking Cross Guns Bridge and Ashtown, there have been too many delays in getting construction work started on the stretch linking the North Strand and Phibsborough.

However, following a meeting I chaired last month, I can confirm that Dublin City Council appoint a contractor before Christmas to undertake the construction of an enhanced pedestrian and cycleway between Newcomen Bridge and Cross Guns Bridge. The Council expect the construction period to last approximately two years.

Notwithstanding the Council advancing shortly to the selection of a preferred contractor, it is likely that we will have to consider a revised planning scheme for the linking of the greenway to Binns Bridge. Details of this issue and a wider briefing on the proposed Greenway can be found below:

  1. Hi Ray,

    Fair play on this. I have a walk New Year’s day to help promote completion of the Greenway, and I’m collecting signatures on a related online petition. Maybe you’d be interested in the walk?
