2KM ‘MISSING LINK’ ON DUBLIN BAY CYCLE PATH TO BE COMPLETED BY AUGUST 2016
Posted on 19/08/15 at 3:59
Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr. Cieran Perry and Minister Paschal Donohoe, have today joined representatives from the National Transport Authority and Dublin City Council to review progress of the construction of the 2km ‘missing link’ between Sutton and Clontarf that will become a cycleway and pedestrian promenade from the Wooden Bridge to Causeway Road on the seaward side of the Clontarf Road and James Larkin Road. Forming part of the “East Coast Trail”, this project will complete the northern section of the route and provide a continuous cycle and walking route between East Wall and Sutton.
As part of the project, improved flood defence will be delivered over the full length of the scheme, including repairs to the existing sea walls and new retaining wall construction at the northern and southern end of the site.
Construction began in May this year and is scheduled for completion in Summer 2016. The scheme which is located within the UNESCO designated Dublin biosphere area was planned and designed to take into account the sensitive environmental and ecological issues, with the construction works incorporating restrictions at particularly sensitive times during this period. The scheme will be delivered at a cost of €6.5m.
