I would definitely like to hear more about that plan. The idea of removing traffic from the front of Heuston was mentioned in the Reflecting City website, but not in such a drastic way.
The eastern boundary of the Clancy Barracks site makes a curve from St. John’s Road over to Conyngham Road, so I’m presuming this is where the traffic would be directed, because east of that is all railway lines. Still, there is the question of what the traffic would do when it gets to Benburb Street.
And when he talks about the Paris style gravel boulevard between the Liffey and the Park, does he mean eliminating Chapelizod Road? Sounds mad at first, but when you think about it there are two roads here duplicating each other – St. John’s Road and it. It’s not that necessary.
Alonso, yes the council’s AI request for Arnotts could be read like you say. Still, I thought it showed a lot of resistance. They even mentioned alternative locations; Abbey Street and Liffey Street – <a href="http://www.dublincity.ie/swiftlg/apas/run/WPHAPPDETAIL.DisplayUrl?theApnID=5170/06&theTabNo=2&backURL=Search%20Criteria%20>%20Arnotts Additional Information request
