It was due to be completed by February of this year. 

A cycle to school initiative in the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown area has been further delayed.

25km of dedicated walking and cycling routes were due to be completed earlier this year.

An issue arose with a route through Deansgrange due to objections to a one-way route.

65 schools are set to be linked on three separate routes through the cycle to school initiative.

Fianna Fáil Councillor Shay Brennan says work will begin again on the project.

"The third route, the sea to mountains route, does not go through Deansgrange."

"So work is actually able to recommence on that, it's a third of the overall scheme."

In terms of a timeline for finishing the project, Brennan hopes it's sooner rather than later.

"It would be obviously more beneficial and better to get the entire scheme active in time for this school year."
