Printer-friendly version

The Fitzwilliam Cycle Route scheme comprises of a one-way continuous parking-protected cycle lane on both sides of the road extending from Leeson Street to Mount Street Lower along Fitzwilliam Place, Fitzwilliam Street and Merrion Square East, a distance of 1km. The scheme will link to the Grand Canal Premium Cycle Route at Leeson Street. The Fitzwilliam Cycle Route Scheme will also include improved pedestrian facilities; and, critically, the upgrade and redesign of the junctions along the route to improve conditions for cyclists and pedestrians.  The scheme will also provide public realm upgrades to the island at the Adelaide Road / Leeson Street junction.

Dublin City Council carried out a non-statutory public consultation from 13th September 2018 to 12th October 2018 on the Fitzwilliam Cycle Route scheme, and the drawings and summary report linked to this consultation is available from the Consultation Hub Section of the Dublin City Council website. Comments and observations on the scheme were considered and have informed the detail design stage of the scheme.

Construction is scheduled to commence at the end of Quarter 2, 2020.
