Business owners around Grafton Street have welcomed plans to extend the car-free trial to later at night.

It will start at 11am this weekend, lasting until 11pm after positive feedback from the first test weekend last Saturday and Sunday.

Originally the pedestrianisation trial, that is taking place over four weekends, was in place until 7pm in the evening.

Sections of South Anne Street, South William Street, Duke Street, Drury Street and Dame Court have seen traffic removed as part of the initiative to free-up space for pedestrians and provide more support to struggling businesses.

Meanwhile Karl Purdy from coffeeangel on South Anne Street says the city council has agreed to extend the footpath, allowing outdoor seating 7-days a week;

"So they are adding another 2.8 metres onto the footpath which will allow us to put tables and chairs out all along South Anne Street, not just us, but other businesses."

Work is expected to start next week and is due to be completed within a matter of days.
