Pedestrian plan for Dublin city centre


Dublin city centre is set to become largely pedestrianised, with priority given to walkers, cyclists and public transport, according to a new draft strategy developed by the city’s planners.



The “Your City, Your Space” plan estimates that the amount of pedestrians accessing the city daily will increase from the current half a million to 600,000 by 2020.



The draft discourages through-traffic and makes provision for removing unnecessary and unsightly street furniture and signage. Other proposals include plans to improve Grafton Street, College Green and the Liffey quays, as well as an unidentified “high-profile dereliction blackspot in the city centre”.



The council will work in collaboration with transport agencies, utility companies, state agencies and private developers, and proposes that the private sector become involved in managing public areas.



The draft strategy can be viewed at www.dublincity.ie/planning or in the civic offices at Wood Quay, council area offices and libraries.
