All trams don’t blast people out of it, most just ring their bell and go quietly by…
I fear your College Green Platz idea is hopefully unrealistic, at least in the short-term, I think it’s more Picadilly Circus than a quiet pedestrian zone.
The core issue to be decided first is bus or luas or both, and banning cars, it looks like they’re going for bus & luas and banning cars, I personally don’t see how you can run Luas through there and not significantly disrupt the buses, maybe tunnels are the right option, that’s long-term though and means shelving line BX, no harm really. or maybe bus tunnels and leave luas on the ground as it’s much less intrusive.
The plaza idea is pie in the sky at this stage!
Well the department of transport have had the plan since march.
The core issue is a transport/urban study to examine the options of having no luas bus…
and then decide… We don’t even know how many people are going to move from buses to metro norh inter connector yet..
The plaza is not pie in the sky just hire Jan… or make it a protected structure or make an amendment to the development plan
