would be interested to know how the high ceiling rooms perform from a heating point of view
Will the heat from the under floor heating not gather at ceiling level forcing cold air down to the room space.
Tram terminates @ city Quay south side
Passangers if they wish alight from tram & walk to Tallaght line tram (North side, a few yards across the CHQ footbridge)
trams or lines dont connect.
couldnt say for certain
although tight turning angles have been achieved on the harcourt line
Capel St Bridge redevelopment = 1st class job
Views down the boardwalk twords the millenium bridge are fantastic especially in the summer
it just makes u want to stop for a few moments & a nice cup of coffee
Just noticed – that this unique street is over run by cars at the moment & has very narrow footpaths.
I’ve nothing against furniture shops.
elevators = additional construction cost, additional maintenance costs, may require opperator & more susceptible to vandalism.
This one is nearly solved, we could go to tender next wk.
ramp @ 4% gradient
Ht. of loopline above quays 6m approx
length of ramp required 150m approx
length of loopline between custom hse quay and intersection with Beresford place rd – approx 80m
ramp from custom hse quay to landing at beresford quay – 75m
ramp from landing to high level bridge over liffey – 75m
It looks feasable at first glance on paper althought this would require a more detailed survey to check headroom clearances, landtake, possible obstructions etc.
further to the above
The AA & other motoring bodies may objet to widening the footpaths ( narrowing an already congested quay commeter road)
A High level pedestrian access to tara street stn as described could contribute a significant benifit to pedestrians in this location at a reasonably favourable cost. ( while enhancing a functional structure )
Disabled access can be provided as with any other pedestrian overbridge by use of ramps.
Links can be made to the board-walk and promenade in front of the custom hse, linking and opening up a considerable and attractive pedestrian space to the location.
Agreed Stack-A bridge & other bridges are all positive improvements linking the quays for pedestrians. However above suggestion is specifically targeted twords accessing Tara St Stn & associated pedestrian traffic overloading at commuter times.
following up on notjim’s post
A high level pedestrian link along the loopline (similar in style to the Hungerford idea) would allow pedestrians easy acess from tara street station (hign level) across the liffey twords the IFSC without having to interact with the traffic below.
The volume of pedestrian traffic in the tara street area is high & overloads the current foorpath arrangements along the quays.
By the way I realise Conolloy station serves the IFSC.
The Loop Line bridge is a similar structure to the Hungerford Railway bridge across the Thames in London. A design competition was set by the cross river partnership in 1996 to aestethically update the hungerford bridge & include pedestrian assess across the river.
The winning entry made a huge improvement
something similar could work for the Loop-Line
