The National Transport Authority has scrapped plans to ban bikes from certain parts of the luas cross city line
It had wanted to block them from areas like Dawson Street which would force cyclists to make a 1.5km diversion around the back of Trinity.
Dublin City Council has turned down the NTA's request for the ban. Now signs will be erected asking cyclists to dismount instead of divert.
Ciaran Ryan from the Dublin Cycling Campaign says he welcomes the decision but says 'Cyclists Dismount' signs won't solve the problem either.
"There's no legal imperative to dismount so people don't have to obey those signs. If anything, they'll make things worse. Other road users like taxi drivers may assume cyclists are breaking the law (when they're not), so the signs should be taken away."
