3.0 Planning for the Bicycle

Against the policy background for the bicycle, there are a variety of action areas to promote and deliver for the bicycle mode. The overall objective is to plan for and encourage many more people to choose and use the bicycle in Irish towns and cities.

In this section, we limit our focus on the urban design, traffic management, and facilities development issues. Pivotal to all of these is cycle network planning, in the context of an overall traffic management plan, and an overarching county development plan.
