The work will include promoting and facilitating safe walking and cycling connectivity to schools, third-level institutions and places of work, a residential safe and quiet streets initiative, and advice on the design and installation of cycling infrastructure, as well as junction design.

Combining Ramboll’s global smart mobility, international regeneration and placemaking expertise with project and programme management, the team will be identifying mobility solutions that can be implemented in the short-term, whilst ensuring a holistic view of the long-term to strengthen neighbourhoods, retail and local businesses as well as providing better access to recreation and surrounding nature. 

In pursuit of delivering best practice, the Ramboll team will also utilise its client network to engage with city and municipal authorities in Denmark, so that they can share their experiences of planning and installing safe walking and cycling infrastructure over the past 30-40 years directly with DLR. 

Speaking of the collaboration, DLR County Council Director of Service for Infrastructure & Climate Change, Robert Burns said:

“We are looking to learn from the knowledge and experience of countries like Denmark and the Netherlands, who have established safe, effective and attractive active mobility networks in their countries for over 30 years, both in terms of DLR’s shorter term COVID-19 response and longer term future transportation planning for the county.”

Marianne Weinreich, Ramboll Smart Mobility Market Manager said:

“We are delighted to be combining the expertise of our global mobility experts, who have decades of cycling planning experience in Denmark and other active travel nations, with the Danish Cycling Embassy (which I chair), our global regeneration experts, and the local Ramboll team in Dublin to support DLR County Council in their safe walking and cycling for all ambition”. 

Elad Eisenstein, Ramboll Regeneration and Cities Director added:

“This work provides DLR County Council the opportunity to create holistic placemaking solutions that meets both their immediate ambitions to facilitate safe walking and cycling for all, whilst optimising those solutions to support local businesses, improve the public realm and strengthen neighbourhoods for the long-term prosperity of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown”.  

The commission builds on Ramboll’s growing portfolio of green infrastructure, sustainability and energy projects in Ireland.
