Work has begun on four Dublin streets which will become pedestrianised later this month.

This week Dublin City Council began work on parts of Anne Street South, Drury Street, South William Street, and Dame Court, and the changes will come into effect by May 24th.

The council says the decision to carry out the changes was made following successful weekend pedestrianisation trials last year.

Survey

An online survey conducted by Dublin City Council into the trials received 1,588 responses, with 95% of respondents in favour of permanently pedestrianising the streets.

The plans for pedestrianising the streets were also issued for consultation in November 2020 and 97% of respondents were in favour. Originally scheduled to be introduced in January 2021, the plans were put on hold when Level 5 restrictions were introduced.

With the recent easing of restrictions and with the resumption of all construction activity, Dublin City Council can now undertake the works to put the pedestrianisation plans in place.

Traffic-Free

From Monday the 24th of May the following four streets will be either traffic-free, or have sections of them traffic-free daily after 11am.

  • Anne Street South from the junction of Dawson Street
  • South William Street from Exchequer Street to the Brown Thomas carpark exit
  • Drury Street from just after its junction with Fade Street to the Drury Street underground carpark
  • Dame Court From Exchequer Street
