Children should be able to cycle safely to local amenities

Most community facilities in Malahide (sports clubs, schools etc.) are on the shore of the Broadmeadow Estuary, or quite near it. Building a safe coastal pathway for shared use by pedestrians and cyclists will allow all of us, but especially children, to cycle safely to local amenities. This will improve the health of the community, reduce local traffic and provide a superb tourist attraction.
