March-2004 DRA Appoints Consultants

Another milestone has been reached in the campaign to promote the Sandycove to Sutton Cycleway and Promenade. On Friday 27th February, 2004, ffollowing interviews of a short list of consultants, the Dublin Regional Authority has accepted the recommendation of the interview board and appointed a consortium to undertake the design and environmental study of the proposal. The Consortium is lead by WSP and included AWN Consulting, Ryan Hanley and Tiros Resources. The consortium will start work immediately and is expected to complete the project by next summer. The importance of this study lies in the fact that it will look at the entire route as a single entity. All of the Local Authorities along with the Department of Transport, the Dublin Docklands Development Authority and the Dublin Transportation Office are supporting the study.
