College Green restrictions ‘could continue into 2019’
Traffic restrictions, which have seen the removal of services for thousands of Dublin bus passengers from Dublin’s College Green, are set to continue into 2019, Dublin City Council has warned.The unexpected length of last month’s An Bord Pleanála appeal hearing on the council’s plans for a €10 million civic plaza at College Green, means a decision on the project is not expected to be issued by the board until August or September, the council’s head of traffic management Brendan O’Brien has said. The board had been due to issue its decision on Friday of this week. The hearing on the council’s proposal to build the pedestrian and cycle plaza and ban all traffic, including buses and taxis, from accessing Dame Street through College Green opened on March 12th, and had been due to last for three days. However, it was not completed until March 29th.
