Are you a Dub who can’t get enough of this city? But couldn’t it be so much better? The National Transport Authority and Dublin City Council published Dublin City Centre Transport Study this June. The study is essentially a set of proposals to improve overall movement in the city. In a nutshell the study proposes to make the city more pedestrian friendly and less car-centric.
They called for a public consultation on the study which initially ran from June 11 to July 16 but has now been extended to August 7 at 5pm. The public consultation ensures that as a city, as citizens, our views can be heard before final decisions are made. It seems like a no brainer but Arnotts CEO has rallied local businesses against the proposals, he believes it will negatively impact local businesses. Give DCC your opinions HERE
As part of the proposals, the bus gate at College Green would permanently restricted to Luas, buses, cyclists and pedestrians. There are proposals to develop a public space in front of Trinity College. On the North and South Quays, Bachelors’ Walk would be similarly restricted to buses, cyclists and pedestrians. As a result Westmoreland Street and D’Olier Street would no longer be a through route for cars, footpaths would be extended and cycling facilities improved, linking the city centre’s two main points, O’Connell Street and Grafton Street. Suffolk Street would be pedestrianised and a new civic space would be created on St Stephen’s Green North between Dawson Street and Grafton Street.
