Transport Insights Advises On Proposed College Green Civic Plaza

Transport Insights has provided advice and support to City Centre businesses and residents in response to a public consultation for Dublin City Council’s proposed College Green Traffic Management Measures. The proposals consist of the development of a civic plaza at College Green, with numerous bus services rerouted through Parliament Street. Following baseline data collection and analysis, and a critique of the proposed scheme against the City Development Plan and best practice, the proposed scheme was found to have a negative impact on the pedestrian environment, commercial activities and residential amenity on Parliament Street and the wider Temple Bar area. The findings of the review were summarised within a Transport Submission in response to the consultation, which can be found at this link. Following conclusion of the consultation process, Dublin City Council now intend to undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment of the proposed scheme.
