Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council launches engagement on New Safe Walking and Cycling Routes

As part of the Active School Travel initiative launched in August 2020, the Council has now launched public engagement on three new pilot routes, to upgrade and connect the existing walking and cycling network in the County. These new, consolidated routes totaling approximately 20 kilometres in length, are aimed at encouraging increased walking and cycling to school, and for wider use by the general public.

Maps and a description of the three pilot routes are included in the attached Information and Engagement Booklet. A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document is also attached for your information.

The Council are seeking views and feedback from the public to help inform Phases 2 and 3 of the project. This current public engagement stage (Phase 1) is taking place from Friday 25th September up to and including Friday 23rd October 2020.
