College Green: Last Chance To Have Your Say On New Pedestrianisation Plans

Today marks your last chance to have your say on the new plans for the reinvention of Dublin's College Green.

The latest plans are based on lessons learned from a series of car-free days in the area over the summer and early autumn.

The College Green Plaza project was rejected by An Bord Pleanála in 2018 with planners raising concern about the relocation of bus stops and potential impact on traffic in the city centre.

Dublin City Council has said the new Bus Connect plans have answered those concerns and is now asking the public for their thoughts on two options.

The first involves the partial pedestrianisation of the area and would allow delivery vehicles to access it 24-hours a day, with a segregated two-lane cycle lane running along the entire section between South Great George’s Street and Anglesea Street.

The second would see the area kept completely traffic-free for most of the day, with delivery drivers offered access between 6am to 11am – the same arrangement as is in place for Grafton Street and Henry Street.

This option also includes the two-lane cycle lane.

The options were chosen from a total of five considered by a transportation consultant as part of a Multi-Criteria Appraisal (MCA) process.

Members of the public are being asked to choose their favoured option and to give their opinion on the positives and negatives of each.

The City Council is also looking for opinions on how either option could be enhanced.

You can take part in the survey here.
