A new bypass of the Luas tram tracks has opened on College Green in the city. 

A video captured by Twitter user @Peteer shows the route which allows those traveling from Pearse Street and the northside to avoid the Luas lines. According to, it does not, however, provide access to Dawson Street or Nassau Street.

Are you a cyclist in the city and, if so, will the new bypass be a help or a hindrance? Let us know in the comments.
