About Documenting Irish Cycle Lanes
Photos of the poorly designed and maintained cycle lanes / cycle tracks in Ireland. Original named Documenting Dublin's Cycle Lanes, and renamed to include poor cycle lanes all around Ireland.
The Dublin Transportation Office (DTO) has published maps of cycle tracks in Dublin. They said: "These maps are not a representation of the quality of or safety along these routes... Indicated cycle routes are correct as from summer 2007."
This group was set up to show exactly how unusable and how dangerous some of these lanes are due to poor or dangerous design, lack of maintenance, and cars parking and stopping on them. These maps also list normal bus lanes -- often without enough room for a bus and a bicycle -- as cycle lanes. The DTO's maps do not show reality.
