Re: Barrow Street
Bit of a revamp of the public realm of Barrow Street proposed…or at least to the area around Google’s offices. The rest of the street to be left as a dump.
Pursuant to the requirements of the above, notice is hereby given of the proposed public realm improvements works to Barrow Street for an area extending from the existing railway bridge on Barrow Street to the northern property boundary of Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 2. The proposed works will comprise of the following: – Introduction of traffic calming measures including the closure of a section of Barrow Street beneath the railway bridge to through vehicular traffic. This will be achieved by the provision of removable bollards on both sides of the existing railway bridge allowing pedestrian and cyclist movement only. – Widening of footpaths and provision of improved pedestrian crossing points. – Resurfacing of carriageway and footpaths. – Improvements to the public realm to facilitate the disabled, visually impaired and elderly including the introduction of guidance strips, marked crossings and dished kerbs. – Revised parking, loading bay arrangements and taxi stand facilities. Parking will be removed between the Railway Bridge and Gordon Street resulting in the loss of 25 car parking spaces on Barrow Street. – Provision of new street lighting. – Provision of pavement lighting under the Railway Bridge (a Protected Structure). – Provision of new street furniture including seats and bins etc. – Introduction of new soft landscaping measures including planting and trees. – Provision of appropriate directional signage and markings.
