LIMITED ACCESS TO THE GRANGEGORMAN CAMPUS EAST-WEST CYCLE PATH

LIMITED ACCESS TO THE GRANGEGORMAN CAMPUS EAST-WEST CYCLE PATH

A few days ago I mentioned that I could not gain access to the new campus cycle path ... today I did.

I live at Henrietta Place [or Bolton Street if I use the front door] and I frequently visit the Grangegorman college campus which is physically very close to my apartment but it a long walk to get there [about 20-30 minutes rather than about six or seven]. Recently a new pedestrian-cycle path was opened but I did not get the opportunity to use it until today as it is closed from the 21st December to the 2nd January 2019.

After a bit of online research I discovered that east-west walking and cycling access through the Grangegorman campus was opened to the general public in November [2018] but with opening hours that excludes rush hours.

The Grangegorman Development Agency said on its website: “The Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform Paschal Donohoe TD officially opened the new link between Grangegorman and Constitution Hill this morning, Friday 16 November. This new link, while temporary, is historic, as it is the first time the Grangegorman site will link directly to the north inner city.” According the the Grangegorman Development Agency “It will be possible to walk from the campus to Bolton Street in 9 minutes. The Grangegorman Development Agency would like to thank the HSE, DIT, Dublin City Council, Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann, CIE, the National Transport Authority and Transport infrastructure Ireland for helping to make this happen”.

Some locals that I spoke to told me that access to the route will from 9am to 4pm [does not agree with notice at entrance] and one person, who was more than annoyed, told me that this limited access does not comply with planning permission requirements.
