Safe Access to Bull Island

Safe Access to Bull Island

Provide safe cycling and walking space on Bull Island Causeway and keep the wooden bridge access for walkers, cyclists, with Island residence and disability permit only parking.

Why is this important?

This amenity is very important and has been enjoyed by thousands of people during COVID-19 restriction as a safe place for recreation to walk and cycle with plenty of space for physical distancing. With the lifting of car restrictions onto the Causeway and the Wooden bridge of 18th May it will no longer be possible for the majority of people of all ages to continue to enjoy this amenity safely. Bull Island is an important protected biosphere and it should be kept free from air pollution. It is the stated aim of Dublin City Council to encourage cycling and walking.
