LOCALS can look forward to availing of a new amenity on the Northside now that summer has arrived. 

Lord Mayor of Dublin Brendan Carr officially opened the latest phase of the Sutton to Sandycove (S2S) Cycleway at a ceremony held recently at the tram shelter on Clontarf Road.

This latest 2km section of the S2S Cycleway includes a new segregated two-way cycle track and 4km of upgraded footpaths. 

The public lighting along the route has been upgraded and the historic tram shelter at Clontarf has also been restored and enhanced. 

The National Transport Authority (NTA) funded the work. 

The current work included the provision of a continuous coastal flood defence wall from Bull Road to Causeway Road as part of the Dublin Coastal Flood Protection Project and the Dublin SAFER Project.  

During the construction of the cycleway and footway a 600mm diameter water main was installed. 

Irish Water contributed towards the installation of the water main and worked with Dublin City Council to ensure that the water main installation, cycleway and footway works were all carried out at the same time. 

The works were coordinated to help to minimise disruption to residents, business owners and road users.

The Lord Mayor said he was delighted to open this stage of the Sutton to Sandycove (S2S) Cycleway.

“I hope that residents and tourists alike will get great enjoyment from this wonderful amenity on the north side of the city,” he said. 

“I congratulate Dublin City Council, the National Transport Authority, Irish Water and the contribution from the local community for coming together to work on this project in this environmentally sensitive area. 

“This approach minimised disruption to road users, residents and businesses alike.”

Anne Graham, chief executive of the National Transport Authority, said: “The cycleway is an excellent example of the positive results that can be achieved when agencies – in this case NTA, Dublin City Council and Irish Water – work together towards a shared objective. 

“This segment of the Sutton to Sandycove project will not only provide a safer environment for cyclists from Clontarf and surrounding areas who use their bike to get to work, but will be of great amenity benefit to families, locals and visitors alike."
