How Wide? Admin at 10:30 am September 1, 2017 This morning. Spotted in Loughlinstown/Killliney, South County Dublin. The Goat writes: “Wider than a car lane. Over twice the width of the new bike lane. Urban planning madness.” Anyone? FacebookTwitterPinterest Related posts: The Eviction In Killiney: New Video Sure Where Would You Get It?

The idea that people on foot should get more space than a car is mad?
Grass is so ugly anyway…
Maybe they’re planning on partitioning some of it as a cycle lane?
the post says there is a cycle lane. It is visible between the cars and the path in the picture.
Perhaps this will be removed?
Has OP bothered to check the plans? no..
“ehhhh….whadda u mean Feet?”
Stupid pedestrians with their fancy shoes and smarmy walking techniques. It’s a disgrace Joe….
Don’t see the problem. Its wide enough for buggies, wheelchairs, etc to pass easy without needing to go onto the grass or cycle lane. Why would the cycle lane need to be bigger, its going one way only and has enough room to over take.
The cars already have 2 lanes? What more do you want? 3 lanes?!!
How many houses could you build with all that concrete ??
I could be wrong, but I think it’s a footpath.
Hope that helps answer The Goat’s riddle.
Wide enough for 2 wheelchairs to pass each other.
As pointed out above, if a cycle path allows 2 bikes to pass each other it’s fit for purpose (though I’m sure you lose priority a junctions with minor roads and can’t get off the cycle path in time to make any right turns because cycle paths are at best an attempt to get bikes out of the way and more often designed with no clear objective other than ticking the box that says a bike lane was installed

Will nobody think of the poor skateboarders!
