Thats exactly it….quick fix engineering solutions. I dont get it. College Green is so disfunctional as a civic space. It ooozes potential, its constantly being refered to by people like Dick Gleeson and Ali Grehan as the grand civic space of the city centre and yet no one can see beyond providing more space for traffic.
I mean if you think about it, Dame Street and college Green contain or are close to: the country’s most prestigious university, the first purpose built parliament building in the world, the city hall, dublin castle, and one of our cathedrals, as well as being next to Temple Bar and Grafton Street. If they simply brought in rules about shop fronts and pedestrianised the whole area, it could rival the Royal Mile in Edinburgh for grandeur. That’s a depressing thought.
