Cycle in Dublin? The Royal Canal is getting a new cycle path

Work is expected to start early next year.

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL has announced plans to build a cycle path along the Royal Canal in Dublin.

The project includes a cycle and pedestrian route along the Royal Canal from Sheriff Street Upper to Ashtown.

The 7.5 km route has been divided into three phases and the work is expected to cost between €10-12 million.

The plans are part of the Royal Canal Greenway project which includes a fourth, already constructed, 400m link which runs along Guild Street from North Wall Quay to Sheriff Street Upper.

Once finished the path will complete Dublin’s section of the national cycle route from Dublin to Galway – which will be used in the EuroVelo Route 2.

This is an impression of potential improvements to the derelict site to the immediate north of Sheriff Street Upper.
