I emailed DCC asking for photomontages of the Grafton Street proposals. DENIED.

I guess we’ll have to wait for the vague, black and white photocopies that they stick up on their site.

I’m a bit concerned about this:

The background colour will be a mid-grey with a “way-finding path” of dark grey stone off the central roadway on one side to provide an obstruction-free route along the street.

Does that mean that there will be a marked roadway through the street? If so, wouldn’t that transform the entire experience of the street from being exclusively pedestrian to a shared roadway? Pedestrians will be subconsciously aware that the street is for also for traffic. Not good.

Are we going to end up with something like Fail Street in Stephen’s pic?

I have zero faith in DCC.
