Parliament Street is going traffic free three evenings a week, starting from tomorrow.

Following on from previous trials in the area, the new phase will see the street go traffic free from 6:30pm to 11pm, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until the end of August.

After the traffic-tree trials at both Parliament Street and Capel Street last summer, 92% of people said the absence of traffic on Parliament Street significantly improved their experience of it.

In May of this year, Dublin City Council made Capel Street permanently traffic free, making it the longest traffic-free street in the city.

Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy says: "The decision to dedicate urban spaces to pedestrians and cyclists has been nothing short of transformative. It’s great to see the introduction of another traffic-free space in the heart of the city centre.

"I have no doubt that these traffic-free evenings will significantly enhance the experience of those visiting Parliament Street."

Emergency vehicular access will be maintained at all times as the emergency services will be able to access all locations on Parliament Street.
