Dublin plaza ‘would see 1,600 buses a day’ on Parliament Street
Up to 1,600 buses per day – or up to 145 buses an hour at peak times – would move through Parliament Street in Dublin if the proposed College Green civic plaza goes ahead, a planning hearing has heard.Turning Parliament Street into a “bus corridor” to facilitate the pedestrian and cycle plaza would have a “profound” impact on businesses and residents and a serious long-term impact on air quality, locals claimed.The oral hearing by An Bord Pleanála into Dublin City Council’s plan to create a traffic-free civic space on College Green and Dame Street heard submissions from a number of experts on behalf of M.E Hanahoe Solicitors and other businesses in the Parliament Street area.
