Cycle Lanes

Cycle lanes in Dundalk town centre

Louth Fianna Fáil Councillor Emma Coffey has called for Louth County Council to carry out an audit of the existing cycle lane networks in Dundalk. 

A report on LMFM revealed that Cllr Coffey tabled the motion at the council's monthly meeting. 

Councillors called for a full audit to determine peak and off-peak usage times and usage trends and destinations. 

Councillors said the audit would help to ensure future funding. 

At the meeting, LMFM reported that Cllr Coffey revealed that there were no cycle maps available, "even on the council's website". 

The Louth Cllr said that there are "health and safety and road benefits" involved in improving the cycle lanes.
