Work Begins On Tallaght To Ballyboden Cycle Route

Construction has begun on the first phase of the Tallaght to Ballyboden cycle route, with Mayor of Dublin South, Dermot Looney, carrying out the official sod turning ceremony.

Funded by the National Transport Authority, the cycle route is part of a wider network of new high quality cycle ways proposed throughout the Dublin region.

The project will provide two new bridges, one over the Dodder and one over the Ballycullen stream and will increase links between the existing communities of Tallaght and Firhouse.

South Dublin County Council has secured more than €1.5m from the National Transport Authority to deliver this significant new landmark pedestrian and cycle bridge together with new footpaths and cycleways at the point where two planned cycle routes meet at Dodder Valley Park.

Clonmel Enterprises Ltd. are the appointed contractor who will construct the route over the coming months.
