Dublin businesses have joined forces to demand a safer cycling infrastructure in the city.

The calls comes as three-quarters of companies in the capital reported that congestion is having a greater negative impact on their businesses this year.  More than 40 of Dublin Chamber’s member companies want the Government to provide the National Transport Authority with the funding required to implement the GDA Cycle Network Plan, which was launched in 2013.

Demands include more segregated cycle lanes within the M50, more bike-parking facilities at train stations and Luas stops, and the delivery of more parking-protected cycle lanes. The move is part of a new partnership between the Chamber and the CyclingWorks Dublin campaign, which aims to encourage the business community to lobby for more spending on cycling.
