New Bicycle Stands in the City Centre

Posted 4 Mar 2011 to News by Sarah Scannell

Drawing from the results of the online public consultation, the initial construction phase of Dublin City Council’s cycle parking programme was completed recently with the installation of a number of new bicycle stands in the city centre. The new parking facilities are in the form of Sheffield Stand stations and are located at sites that scored highly on the online public consultation. Many of the new stands are close to city centre shopping areas, such as Grafton Street and George’s Street, and it is hoped that they will help meet the demand for cycle parking at these locations. The new stands can be found at:

  • Fitzwilliam Street Lower
  • Newmarket
  • Drury Street
  • Clarendon Row
  • College Green
  • Exchequer Street
  • Cecilia Street

Some of the sites (College Green, Exchequer Street, Cecilia St)  are an upgrading of existing facilities, while the others (Fitzwilliam Street Lower, Newmarket, Drury Street, Clarendon Row) are new sites. The map below shows the locations of the new cycle parking stands.
