NEWS IN BRIEF: Around 7,000 submissions on the Capel St/Parliament St traffic-free scheme have been received from members of the public and businesses, Dublin City Council has said.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

“The City Council received approximately 7,000 submissions, making this our largest consultation to date. We received a wide range of diverse views which will take some time to carefully analyse. The initiative is being extended by an additional weekend, meaning it will now finish on October 3rd,” said Dublin City Council.

The council added: “When the submissions have been considered, a report will then be prepared for the elected members and detailed planning of the preferred option will be advanced. Any option which is advanced will be subject to further consultation and any necessary statutory requirements.”

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
