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.
The area can be a congested area for pedestrians, especially on the narrow footpaths around Grand Canal Dart station.
A previous plan included filtering out through-traffic from the space under the railway bridge to allow for wider footpaths, but the new plan will instead include a shuttle traffic light system at the railway bridge.
Ahead of that here are images presented to South East Area councillors at their local area meeting today:
Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.
There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!
Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.
I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.
The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
