    Someone keeps throwing a spanner in the works, methinks.
    Makes you think we should have a time limit on these processes.Once the time's up they have to throw a dart at a board and pcik one of the proposals.

    Why? Cyclists outnumber motorists on the quays in rush hour. There were two serious accidents involving cyclists on the quays last week. One was a man in his 60's who had his foot crushed and is still in a serious condition.

    Besides, the Luas tracks are highly dangerous for cyclists. I have had been upended twice on them on College Green. Both times I was going at just over walking pace. There have been very large number of accidents involving cyclists and Luas tracks: Luas tracks causing rise in cycling injuries, says hospital worker - Independent.ie

    Nearly four cyclists are hospitalised in Ireland every day - Journal.ie

    If a cyclist cannot navigate a safe path along a wide street with only a couple of inches of (non moving) danger, why would you want to put that cyclist playing in traffic?


    Seperately, the RSA really needs to up its game in relation to accident investigation.

    If you can't measure it (the road safety problem - across all modes) you can't manage it.

    Yes, which is what is happening with the proposed Liffey Cycle Way. The NTA have taken over from the seven year planning fiasco presided over by Dublin CC. This is going ahead.

    If a cyclist cannot navigate a safe path along a wide street with only a couple of inches of (non moving) danger, why would you want to put that cyclist playing in traffic?
    Not sure what you are saing here, but I agree with the last bit: 'why would you want to put that cyclist playing in traffic?'

    Totally agree.

    Absolutely. That would be much safer. But that shouldn't mean that cyclists should get only the crappy, dangerous routes that cars physically can't use.

    There is no way around the need to transfer large amounts of road space currently dedicated effectively exclusively to the internal combustion engine so that it can be used comfortably, safely and efficiently by other categories of road user with other needs.
