Hello once again,
Now, the pedestrian access from Grafton street up to Henry street badly needs vast improvement, I think we all agree. How about completely pedestrianising the northern section of Grafton street. For the buses, this would effectivly turn Trinity into one big roundabout, forcing them to travel in one direction around Suffolk street, Dame street, Pearse street, Westland Row, and Nassau street. Certainly some contra-flow bus lanes would be required. In turn then, College Green could be partially pedestrianised, as could the western parts of Westmoreland street and O’Connell bridge, leading nicely into the O’Connell street imporvements. This would create a nice series of public spaces from the green all the way up through O’Connell street. While two road crossings would still be required, there would be a comfortable levels of space for movement between the two areas.
While the Luas makes things even trickier, routing buses around Trinity in one direction could assist the Luas alignment also.
