No doubt DCC won’t bother doing any improvements to College Green until the RPA have finished laying down tracks. It’ll be a handy excuse for them to delay things for another 5 years. Classic.
Here’s a PDF of the alignement.
Again we separate our grandest buildings from the public. There’s a potential FOUR crossings there for pedestrians to get from the Bank side of College Green to the Trinity side and very little footpath room at the gates to the college too. Just as it’s impossible to get a photo of either St Patrick’s or Christchurch cathedrals without being splattered by oncoming traffic, now tourists have to run the Luas gauntlet to get a decent snap of the old school
It has been repeated here many times, but this area should have been pedestrianized and the Luas extension ditched (or a spur down Nassau St and onto Westland Row or whatever)
The only way the Luas is acceptable here is if there’s an otherwise total pedestrianization of the Green. Traffic AND Luas PLUS People does not a happy civic space make
