Quietways – A New Way to View Our City

From Concept to Misconception to (Hopefully) Completion

Councillor Paddy Smyth, of Dublin City Council, will talk about his proposals for ‘Quietways’ in the Dublin City area. These are, primarily, routes for school children to walk/cycle to and from school via quiet, residential streets through the use of a concept known as “Filtered Permeability”. This means creating a series of vehicular cul-de-sacs across the city which you can still walk or cycle through without competing with motorised commuters, buses or trucks.

The Urban Jungle - Dublin Bus Cycle safety

Following the recent launch of its new driver training video on cyclist safety, Dublin Bus Safety Health & Environmental Manager, James McHugh will address the meeting and give an overview on how Dublin Bus is working to increase stakeholder awareness around cyclist safety. In addition to showing attendees the new video, Mr. McHugh will explain how Dublin Bus is continuing to incorporate key aspects of cyclist safety into its annual driver training programmes and safety initiatives.
