As part of South Dublin County Council's commitment to making the County a national leader in providing a quality network of routes for cyclists, the Cycle South Dublin plan has been developed. The programme seeks to progress works on 260km of new and improved cycle lanes across the County.

As the population of South Dublin grows, we can expect traffic congestion on our roads to increase also. We need to make cycling a credible alternative to the private car.

This can be done by delivering a well-designed, safe and well-connected walking and cycling network for people of all ages and abilities, making cycling a more achievable mode of transport for all adults and children, while improving the cycling identity of the County.

This programme reflects the increasing importance of making cycling a realistic and integral part of how people move around the County. There is currently 207km of cycle lanes across South Dublin County. In recent years, the Council has progressed eight active travel projects totalling approximately 21km of new and improved cycle lanes.
