IMAGES: New plan for redesign of Barrow Street

A new plan for redesigning Barrow Street in Dublin is to go to public consultation on March 23.

The project is to be part-funded by Google but a council official said that Dublin City Council was leading the design of the project.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

Ahead of that here are images presented to South East Area councillors at their local area meeting today:
