Re: Re: Eglinton Street Tower, Cork
Reducing road space for traffic is a retrograde step IMHO. It’s very difficult to increase that space once you’ve done it and we have no idea how bad traffic will be once the Docklands is under construction and when it’s finished. Need all the roadspace we can get to be honest.
That said, you’re dead right about upgrading the pedestrian links in those (and other areas). Just think a way needs to be found without creating traffic problems. e.g. On Blackrock Rd outside Tellengana House, the Council have just put in a bus shelter. Good move, obviously. However, they also doubled the size of the footpath at the same time (to no obvious benefit) which means buses can’t actually pull in anymore and will block the road every time they stop.
