Dutch Cycling Embassy: A Discussion on Sustainable Cycling Infrastructure in Ireland

During the corona pandemic, cities around the world have shown how substantial improvements in cycling and mobility infrastructure can be made in the short term and which benefits all transport users. In conjunction with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ireland, the Dutch Cycling Embassy presents a series of free cycling webinars with local and Dutch experts.

In three digital seminars, experts from Ireland and the Netherlands will share their knowledge and experience from five decades of political processes, transport planning and infrastructure design. The aim: attractive and safe cycle networks for all ages and performance groups and to see where Ireland and the Netherlands can learn from each other’s experience in building safe, user-friendly and inclusive mobility infrastructure. These webinars are aimed at representatives of the cycling sector, political representatives, local and national policymakers and representatives from the business community. The conversations will identify local challenges and opportunities for “quick wins” as well as demonstrating some practical examples from the Netherlands. There will be an opportunity for audience Q&A at the end of each session.

Our first seminar on bicycle parking took place on September 3rd. Due to the positive feedback we have received on this seminar from attendees, it is available to re-watch at the bottom of this page.

Theme Session 3 on Thursday, 1 October - 13.00-14.00 (IST) - "Developing Safe Rural Cycling Infrastructure” with contributions from Robert Burns, Director of Infrastructure and Climate Change, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Eric Nijland, Director, Fietsplatformand Sjors van Duren, Cycling Consultant,  Royal Haskoning.

Hear all about the design and planning principles developed by the Netherlands over time and how they can be applied in the Irish context.
