Reply To: proposed changes to stephen’s green
I think Luas is taking cars out of the area. I also think the new arrangements are making some people avoid the Stephen’s Green area altogether. For instance, I have to go from Northside to Ballsbridge and avoid the Green in the morning but go that way on the way back home. I’d say the arrangements are cutting about 25 per cent of the normal traffic for that area out of the equation altogether.
You’re right about the time of year though. That’s having a huge impact and I think they need some permanent road markings etc, not just cones by the time September comes around.
The more I see of this, the more I’m convinced City Council are going to go with this permanently. I really don’t think it will be any more chaotic come December than the old way.
