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,'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.

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