Pedestrianisation of lanes for the summer

A NUMBER of the city centre’s streets will undergo a process of temporary pedestrianisation for the summer season to acclimatise the public and the business sector to the impact such a development will bring about.

City councillors have been advised by John Breen, director of Transportation and Infrastructure that in order to highlight an awareness of the benefits of pedestrianisation, Little Catherine Street, Augustinian Lane and the area of O’Connell Street in front of Penneys Store will be pedestrianised for the summer season.

“The scheme will involve the closing of streets to through traffic, the installation of planted features and a general upgrade of the area but full business access for deliveries will be facilitated,” said Mr Breen.

He stressed that “extensive consultation” with business owners is taking place.

“It is hoped that such an initiative will be welcomed by business owners and that they will be a necessary party to its successful implementation,” he said.

Reacting enthusiastically to the scheme, Deirdre Martin, proprietor of Mickey Martin’s pub in Augustinian Lane said there is a unanimous welcome from the 10 business owners directly involved.

“We had two meetings recently and the response from all of the owner occupiers is a very positive one – there is absolutely no opposition to the scheme which will provide a wonderful showcase for how attractive successful pedestrianisation will be. The Council will put in trees and planters and bollards, one under the arch at the Catherine Street entrance and another at the Thomas Street entrance to the lane,” she said.

“I would eventually love to see this and other laneways cobbled, painted and with canopies and lights. Compared to Dublin, Cork, Galway and even Tralee, they are yards ahead of us on this but I’m very optimistic that the Summer Season Street Enhancement Scheme will prove a great success and lead on to a very attractive pedestrianisation scheme for the city centre.”
