Fr Russell Rd Residents say NO to Cycle Lane


Our Campaign

Fr Russell Road says NO to Limerick City & Council's proposed dangerous reconstruction of our road that will threaten the comfort, safety & security of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists on the road.

Fr Russell Road residents have received letters from the local authority informing them they are considering draft design options for cycle lanes.

Fr Russell Rd Residents say NO to Cycle Lane



Increased danger for motorists

Fr Russell Rd Residents say NO to Cycle Lane Cyclists will be at increased risk from side-view mirrors of buses and trucks



Cycle lanes are not advised where the road traffic volume is too high. Fr Russell Road is a secondary road with an existing 1088 houses and 3 blocks of flats having direct access by car to the road. This means that as many as 2176 cars will have to cross cycle lanes to gain access to their property daily.

Residents feel that the existing road is too narrow to accommodate the lanes and will put motorists at increased risk when passing buses or trucks on the road and to motorists turning into and driving out of their properties.








Increased risk for cyclists

Double decker buses provide a regular service on Fr. Russell Rd. As the road is too narrow for designated bus lanes, cyclists will be at even greater risk of accidents from the side-view mirrors of the buses and trucks.

Poor quality cycle lanes like those constructed between Quinn's Cross Roundabout and Mungret Village between 2015-2017 actually increased the risk to cyclists as the bad design left a drop to road level at numerous dished entrances.

There are as many as 38 such entrances on the road. The height of the kerb poses a risk to cyclists catching a pedal on such a narrow cycle lane.

Fr Russell Rd Residents say NO to Cycle Lane Dangerous reconstruction will lead to increased risk for all





Increased risk for pedestrians

Fr Russell Rd Residents say NO to Cycle Lane Copper beech tree on Fr. Russell Rd since 1940's

Fr. Russell rd is not a level surface cyclists will speed downhill in a cycle lane at up 40km/h and pose a risk at pedestrian crossings.




Destruction of existing trees and hedges and loss of property



Fr Russell Rd Residents say NO to Cycle Lane

Residents to lose as much as 3m of their property

Existing trees and hedges to be removed on 1.4km of road from St Paul's Roundabout some of these hedgeways have been there since the 1940's. This will lead to an increase in noise pollution.

Some residents may lose some of their property with the boundary walls moved back. The council did this in 1990 when they widened Fr. Russell Rd, residents lost 3m of their land.

Enough is enough.
