+1. And the usual "incremental loss" of historic kerbs, exactly what the City Council's 'Historic Street Surfaces in Dublin' report 2009 is trying to stop:mcdanish wrote:This is dreadful, such an eyesore and also makes the footpath narrower as the bollards are an obstruction to pedestrians especially with buggies. People are more likely to step on the road now that these bollards are in place.
With this, the latest intervention on Clarendon street and the drastic so called traffic calming measure at Dublin Castle one has to wonder seriously about the credibility of Dublin City Council to deliver quality streetscapes worthy of the elegant streets of Georgian Dublin.Its seems like DCC is one of the major contributors to the destruction and vandalism of Dublin along with the litterers and graffiti.Seriously heads should roll for some of the work that has been carried out in the city in recent years.Depressing.
