A new bike repair station has been installed along with new bike parking at Balheary, near the skate park.
This comes as new pathways were completed linking Jugback Lane to the new Miller’s Glen playground through the Broadmeadow linear park.
These are all part of ongoing smaller works to make it easier to walk and cycle around Swords. The cycle tracks planned for the Seatown Industrial Road are due to start construction before theend of the year.
Cllr Ian Carey said:
“It’s great to see the bike repair station being installed it will be very handy for people who are caught out. The smaller works, such as the bike parking, will bit by bit make a big difference to making cycling a more convenient way of getting around. The more people cycle, the less cars there are, leading to lower congestion, safer streets, less air pollution, less emissions, less expense on families, and healthier lifestyles.
“It’s also fantastic to see the Broadmeadow Linear park finally connected to make walking through the area easier and opening up the amenities there for the whole community.”
