Official opening of the new Cycletrack

04 May 2017

The following information is an important update from the Clontarf Residents' Association:


S2S works - Wooden Bridge to Causeway Road - Official opening on Friday 5th of May

The S2S works on the Clontarf Road have been ongoing for two years now. These works were intended to provide:

  • the missing link of cycle track and improvements in road safety for all road users
  • a continuous flood-defence scheme
  • other associated works included the renovation of the Tram Shelter, landscaping, street furniture, etc., and,
  • approx. 2km of the new water main.

While the scheme is nearing completion, albeit slowly, some serious concerns remain. We believe that completing the work is more important than having an opening ceremony. However, DCC have decided to launch this phase of the S2S with an official opening by the Lord Mayor tomorrow, Friday, May 5th 2017. CRA, along with other community groups, have been invited to this opening but have declined the invitation. We have advised DCC that as there are significant outstanding issues, including serious safety concerns (click here for more info), we are not in a position to attend a launch event.

We will work with DCC with a view to resolving all of the issues. Further details will be posted over the next week, and we look forward to the real and full completion of the work – for which we still have no date!
