Reply To: Looks a bit different now?
The only difference I see from the photo above is new paving & new trees, so the street looks a bit cleaner. Also it is taken at a time when the street is less busy and there are less cars so of course it looks better.
Judging by the images I would prefer the old one. But I think as a scheme, O’Connell St. looks allot better now, nice and open and it works better as a main thoroughfare. All we need now is to remove the 5 million fast food outlets, the tacky cheapo shops and the gaudy ‘Schuh’ signage.
