DLR CoCo Cycle_route Dalkey

In the 2012, the Council developed a County Cycle Network,
following an assessment of all existing routes in the County.
The main objectives of this assessment were:
> To identify and implement safe cycling routes to key
destinations in the County.
> To retrofit areas towards creating sustainable
neighbourhoods so that cycling, together with walking,
can be the best option for local trips.
> To help prioritise funding to deliver cost effective cyclefriendly improvements to the cycle network in the County.
The aim of the improved cycle network is to create conditions
to encourage and facilitate increased levels of cycling in the
County by providing direct routes with a high level of service.
This leaflet provides details of one route being enhanced as
part of the County Cycle Network.
