A public consultation on a major shake-up of who can use Dublin city's streets closes today.

The draft plan aims to end car dominance, giving over more space to cyclists, pedestrians and public transport.

The Dublin City Centre Transport Plan includes banning cars from sections of the quays, making Parliament Street traffic-free and creating new civic plazas at the Custom House or Beresford Place.

Two new bus gates would be introduced at Bachelors Walk and Aston Quay, reallocating space for buses, cyclists and pedestrians.

New traffic arrangements are also suggested for Westland Row. While a 30km/hr speed limit would kick in on all roads.

The proposals aim to remove two out of every three cars that are currently using the city centre as a "through route".

The consultation finishes at 5pm today, Friday 1st of December 2023.
