There are proposals to pedestrianise two streets in Dublin on a trial basis.

Cars are to be banned in South William Street and Drury Street for the trial.

However Dublin City Council says there are no firm plans as of yet or a time line for when it may happen.

Chairman of the Irish Parking Association, Keith Gavin, is against the idea;

"It's just the latest in a long line of anti-motorist traffic restrictions in the city centre."

He went on to say that it a classic case of the cart before the horse; "Dublin is a city that is very badly served by public transport."

Last year city councillors voted to pedestrianise Lower Liffey Street. While there have been long running plans to ban traffic from around the College Green area.
