Nassau street can be discounted as it would become pointless as a route but
Take a look at the volume of traffic that continues from the North Quay to Dame Street via College Green. All of the traffic for Dame Steet, Georges Street and Christchurch would have to be channelled down the quay and up Parliament Street.
Hundreds upon hundreds of people get buses to work which stop at opp. trinity St. via Dame Street. Would all of these be re-routed up Georges Street? Or Suffolk Street?
Take a look at the traffic jams – all day – on Pearse Street with it’s 4 lanes. And only 3 buses serve it. Take 2 lanes away? Insanity
Don’t want to be a wet blanket but the total chaos caused just because we want to walk from Trinity to um, eh, where exactly? To admire the Bank of Ireland’s railings?
It would seem that the only way to acheive the ideal is to build an underpass.
