June-2006: Proposals invited for feasibility study.

We are delighted to learn that Dublin City Council has invited proposals for the feasibility DCC_logostudy and environmental assessment for a section of the project. This is the first such decision by a Local Authority in relation to the promenade and cycleway and is hugely significant. The full text of the advertisement can be seen here . The following is an abstract from the public notice:

“The proposed promenade and cycleway is located on the seaward side of James Larkin Road between the North Bull Island Causeway and the Wooden Bridge at Dollymount, North Dublin. The proposed width is 8 metres and the project extent is approximately 2 kilometres. The scope of the services required include a Feasibility Study and, if the scheme is found to be feasible, a Preliminary Design is to be carried out. The scope of the Feasibility Study will involve a detailed examination of existing data, selection of feasible options after detailed environmental and statutory aspects have been assessed and the determination of cost estimates for these feasible options.”
