No one except John Fitzgerald and Owen Keegan really know how long this has been on the agenda. But in my opinion the traffic load has been excessive on Stephens Green West for about two years, ever since it went from 4 lanes to 2.
It is in my opinion a move of necessity to try alternative routes for the existing traffic, they don’t have an option because 2 lanes will ensure gridlock.
I think that the traffic load on SGW has been excessive for 5/6 years. Ever cycled around it? And tried not to be funelled down Dawson Street by the motorised traffic? It’s very difficult. The “wasted capacity” of most of the rest of the Green should be utilised. Creating a new pedestrian friendly plaza at the top of Grafton Street is a prize worth trying for.
