Active Transport

Cabra is in a great location with many excellent public transport links. Safety is an issue on our roads and accessibility for all road and footpath users continues to be an issue. Transport emissions in Ireland account for almost 18% of all our total greenhouse gas emissions. As a group, Connecting Cabra conducted a walking and cycling survey and compiled the results into a report which was presented to DCCs Local Area Committee.

We advocate for safer parking, safer cycling and streets where children can play safely.

Mobility Hubs: Connecting Cabra are liaising with the local authority and DCC to get new mobility hubs for regular and EV bike rental stations installed in Cabra. These companies could be private operators such as Moby and Bleeper bikes along with Dublin City bike rentals. Unfortunately, the Cabra and Finglas area is not serviced by Dublin city bikes – but with community support we hope to change this, and increase active travel options for the residents in Cabra.

Potential locations marked in blue X and highlighted in Yellow could be the larger mobility hubs (smaller in scale but similar to the mobility hub found at Finglas). Potential locations marked with red X are potential locations for smaller mobility hubs where regular bike, cargo and e-cargo bike rentals could be located (these may only require 4-5 public bicycle lock spaces in concrete with 2-3 charging ports for smaller EV bicycle/E-Cargo bikes). DCC may require ESB input for suitable locations for these. Some of the locations marked in red are Bannow road, Naomh Fionnbarra GAA club, Cabra Parkside Community Sports Centre and Nephin road, Carnlough road at junction with Cabra above proposed new Dart station and new Hamilton apartments, Dunard Green area, Annamoe road/ Annamoe Green, 2 locations on Fausaugh road shops and the 17 shops Cabra road.

During Bike week 2022: we held a Cabra Cycling Day which was very successful, which we hope to replicate next year! – Check out our website and social media (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) for updates.

Connecting Cabra have been lucky enough to acquire several Telraam traffic counters and they have been distributed around Cabra to get a clear image of the reality of traffic on our streets. Telraam develops high-tech measuring equipment to be used by interested citizens to provide continuous, reliable, standardised data. These citizen scientists are supported to set up their own fully automatic traffic counters and traffic counting can start. All the collected counts are made available for policymaking and research, but also to residents and interested parties. Below is an example of data collected from the Cabra Road. Please see some of the results are below.
