Re: Re: The destruction of St. Stephen’s Green
CURRENT ALIGNMENT CUT COVER
fast interchange with connector
destroy the green
currently architecture not worthy of site but box could be enhanced…
single exit (excluding interconnector) backtracking
CURRENT ALIGNMENT MINED
a little less destruction but still alot
CURRENT ALIGNMENT WEST ALIGNMENT CUT N COVER should be in RPA EIS
minimal damage to the green
architectural green arc
may lead to outer st stephens green master plan and more pedestrisation
dual exits less backtracking easier to go south…
platform width 11-12m nom. limited this will come down to passenger flows RPA EIS
little slower interchange with interconnector + 2-5 minutes nom.
unhappy business in the short term but benifits them more in the long term…
limited to architectural green arch… still impressive… but not huge
CURRENT ALIGNMENT WEST ALIGNMENT MINED should be in RPA EIS
limited architectural scope…
the RPA should have a golden line that will show set back req. from edge of green in EIS…
assuming you can kill 1/3 of the tree canopy in the roots I arrived at a set back between 1.5 -2 m from the fence
I have drawings showing all this… there would also be construction tricks and details ( hope these in EIS)
the footpath on st stephens north green is getting cut by 2m???
the RPA renderings show no poles… I imagine we are going to have loads and cables with luas BX??? will wreck the space
I think they should run the luas around the green so it comes in to its current stop then goes back the way it came and around the green to dawson st… or… it just stops on the west in its curent position and some other luas line goes down dawson st… I just think it makes no sense to lose so much space to the luas in this area???
still not enough bike spaces shown… + 1500 (we need a master plan for the outer green)
change some of the car parking spaces
what do you think of those sky lights in the footpath??
I have some cad drawings but internet is *** at the moment will dump some screenshoots when its up again
