GREEN PARTY WELCOMES COASTAL WALKWAY

The Green Party has welcomed the plan for a promenade and cycleway running from Sandycove to Sutton along the shore of Dublin Bay. The proposal would extend approximately 22 kilometres from Sandycove to Sutton, linking where appropriate existing walkways and cycle-ways.

“This would provide a safe, child-friendly and pollution free promenade for all Dubliner” stated Councillor Ciarán Cuffe of the Green Party, “I believe it is an excellent visionary proposal. I pay tribute to the ‘Sutton 2 Sandycove promenade and Cycleway Campaign’ (www.s2s.ie) group who are promoting this proposal.

“This is an environmentally friendly and achievable project that deserves support. The proposal involves some stretches of new promenade and a new pedestrian and cycle bridge in Ringsend, but it consists mostly of the joining together of stretches of existing walkway.

“I believe it would be a relatively inexpensive project and I shall promote the project through Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Council and Dublin City Council.
