City centre traffic restrictions expected from August

Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan has said he expects proposals to restrict traffic driving through Dublin city centre to start coming into effect from August.

Mr Ryan said the city centre needs a lift and the creation of more space for walking, cycling and public transport would make it a more attractive place to work, live, shop and go out at night.

The draft Dublin city transport plan aims to encourage drivers who want to drive across the city centre to other destinations to drive around the central area and not through it.

Measures included in the plan would see Bachelor’s Walk and Aston Quay closed to motorists and the removal of car traffic from Parliament Street and Customs House Quay.

The results of a consultation on the plan were published this week and showed support levels of more than 80% for proposals to take space from cars in Dublin city centre.
