Re: Re: Grafton Street, Dublin
There is no room for a botched job here. What happened to the notion of testing various paving schemes on minor adjoining streets?
a “way-finding path” of dark grey stone off the central roadway on one side to provide an obstruction-free route along the street.
The existing layout does a good job of regularising what is a fairly haphazzard street line.
This sounds as if the primary visual guide delineated by darker paving will be for vehicular traffic, and worse, set to one side. This is a street for pedestrians and the pedestrian should be the sole focus of any new paving scheme.
Grafton Street is now such a kip that I refuse to walk it anymore.
Can’t believe what they have done to the Boots frontage, and that permission was actually granted.
