Proposed Griffith Avenue segregated cycle lane

Some of you may be aware of various tweets/social media circulating referencing a cycle lane down Griffith Avenue from Balygall Road to Malahide Road. We got onto the council to get some facts about what might be proposed and here is what we found out.

A project is underway to provide a 3.5km rapid deployment segregated cycling route initially
from Ballygall Road to the Malahide Road. This will require provision of additional crossings and a
contra flow cycling facility from Griffith Avenue extension to Griffith Avenue. The green areas
in the map below show the schools and colleges on or near this route and this link will act as a
main spine with extensions either side over time to enable safe cycling to schools and colleges in
the area along this route. Work on the first element of the route at Griffith Avenue extension will
begin next week (as of August 14th 2020). Regular updates will be given as the design and installation progress.

Dublin City Council will begin works on the first part of a cycle lane along Griffith Avenue in the coming weeks along Griffith Avenue Extension. The detail of the cycleway is being made available on a phased basis. Information about the section from Ballymun Avenue to Courtlands is now available. It is expected that details of the plans for the section from Drumcondra Road to Malahide Road will be available in the coming week. The public can submit views and comments via.etc

The email address for views and comments on the cycleway is  (with Griffith Avenue in the subject line).

So, please feel free to email the address above if you have any feelings on the matter. You can also email the AHAA committee ( and let us know how you feel about it and if you have specific input/worries. As a committee we will be discussing this project and submitting our input.

Please also refer to the Dublin City Council website reference below which contains details of the proposed first phase of this plan, and where they will continue to post updates as more progress is made.
