Re: The Macken Street bridge – it is essential but I think the only net gain will be slight relief at two chronic pinch points on Pearse Street going North and Matt Talbot Bridge going South. If everybody abandons the East Link to avoid the toll, traffic could even get worse as a result.
I would have very little problem with the Patrick St right turn into Christchurch being banned.
The only issue is that it would be sending even more traffic towards and on to the quays.
Also, the multi-storey car parks wouldn’t be too happy as it’s a point of access for Trinity Street, Brown Thomas etc and some drivers would circumvent the ban by going down to the quays, crossing Capel Street Bridge, going up Parliament Street and turning left on to Dame Street anyway.
