This is the cycle track by the Grand Canal in Dublin. It’s the only fully segregated track in my neighbourhood and one of the best examples of cycling infrastructure in the entire city.
It extends along the canal for 2km, but crosses a number of junctions where there is no proper separation and has a particularly bad pinchpoint where pedestrians and cyclists share a very narrow path. You can check out the area yourself here.
The pinchpoint section of the track disappears in Google Streetview because there are no recent pictures taken since the track has been built and it’s also a tight spot for Google’s camera’s to access. If the track disappears on you and you can’t find it again, you can restart here and continue on until the end!
