Walking, Wheeling and Cycling


At the end of 2023, Cork City Council also delivered the Grange to Tramore Valley Park pedestrian and cycle bridge and pathway which opened up connectivity between Grange, Douglas and the city centre. The scheme gives residents, students and commuters the option to safely walk, wheel or cycle into the city reducing congestion and provides a beautiful, wooded leisure amenity.
Up to 24km new/upgraded cycling infrastructure has been completed between 2020-2023.

A further 10km of cycle infrastructure is currently under construction (Mahon, Glanmire, Marina, Ballybrack, Ballincollig) with a programme of other schemes due to enter construction over the next year. Construction has begun on the 5.6km Mahon Street Renewal Scheme, Cork’s first community-wide streetscape renewal programme aimed at providing safer and healthier streets with better pedestrian and cycle links to schools, shops, sports and leisure facilities. The scheme extends along Ringmahon Road, Skehard Road, Avenue de Rennes, Ballinure Avenue/The Maples and Castle Road.
