Four Dublin city centre areas to become permanently pedestrianised

Words: Dylan Murphy

The plans include Drury Street, South Anne Street and Dame Court with South William Street becoming partially pedestrianised.

Following a trial period, Dublin City Council is working towards the permanent pedestrianisation of several streets in the capital. Cars would be banned permanently from several areas near to Grafton Street.

It comes after areas close to Grafton Street such as South William Street were made inaccessible to cars during the summer months.

Though areas like Drury Street and South Anne Street will have pedestrianised areas, South William Street will not be fully pedestrianised as Brown Thomas need to allow cars to exit their car park.

Next, a period of consultation between the business community and pedestrians before the plans are enacted.
