Dunkettle Active Travel
The development of an Active Travel Route from Tivoli to Little Island is being proposed by Cork County Council in partnership with Transport Infrastructure Ireland. The proposed Dunkettle Active Travel (DAT) project has the potential to form part of a wider network of active travel provision on the eastern side of Cork city with the potential to connect with other planned active travel schemes such as Glanmire to City Centre Cycle Route (Phases 1 and 2) and active travel facilities provided as part of the Dunkettle Interchange Upgrade Scheme. The DAT project will also interface with a new planned eastern access to the Tivoli docklands site, and may potentially connect to active travel facilities proposed as part of the Tivoli scheme at a future date.
The aim of the DAT scheme is to encourage modal shift to sustainable forms of transport between City Centre/Tivoli and Little Island area by providing a safe and segregated link for cyclists and pedestrians, allowing improved transport efficiency and connectivity while minimising impacts to the natural assets and biodiversity of the area. The project is being delivered in the environmentally sensitive surroundings of the Cork Harbour Special Protected Area which is an internationally important wetland site.
Fehily Timoney and Company have been appointed to deliver the scheme through TII Phase 0 to 4. The DAT scheme is being developed in accordance with the TII Project Management Guidelines, TII Project Appraisal Guidelines and the DoT Transport Appraisal Framework.
