The National Transport Authority and Dublin City Council published the Dublin City Centre Transport Study back in June. The study seeks to address the imminent transport issues facing the core city centre area, to facilitate the implementation of the Dublin City Development Plan, and to safeguard the future growth of the city.
They called for a public consultation on the study which initially ran from June 11 to July 16 but has now been extended to Friday August 7 at 5pm. The public consultation ensures that as a city, as citizens, our views can be heard before final decisions are made. 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.
