Dublin City Council plans a 1km cycle route that uses parked cars as a buffer against traffic, with cyclists in between them and the footway, it was reported.

The 'Parking Protected Cycle Lanes' would be implemented in Dublin's south Georgian core in a €1.1m plan, The Irish Times reported today. A city councillor behind the plan is quoted in the newspaper as saying that instead of being a hazard to cyclists, parked cars could be used to protect them. It said adds that the Dublin Chamber of Commerce backs the idea to "encourage mutual respect between the different transport modes". Parking protected cycle lanes have been implemented in some US cities.

The newspaper says that council engineers would agree design details with the National Transport Authority in the Republic of Ireland.
