Re: Re: pearse street developments
Indeed it is this very public space that ought to be next on the agenda for improvement after Screen & Co.
Definitely. It has such potential especially as it is no longer one of the busiest southside traffic junctions. Presumably traffic will be reduced further as DCC continue to remove traffic from the nearby central north/south axis of O’Connell Street and Westmoreland Street. It would make a great complement to College Green even though it lacks the grand grand buildings of it’s neighbour. It needs the streetscape of Townsend Street and the corner with Hawkins Street to be reinstated ‘though to complete it’s perimeter and they need to reclaim as much space as possible from the roads to recreated the feeling of a large civc square. Ideally, the only traffic ‘though it would be contained in a couple of Bus lanes.
