Dublin’s Capel Street set to be pedestrianised later this month
It comes after a trial run found the majority favoured the plans
Dublin City Council have announced that Capel Street is set to be pedestrianised later this month.
Cars will no longer be able to drive down the north inner city street from Friday May 20th 2022.
A number of businesses in the area, including Jervis Shopping Centre, objected to the plans but following a trial run a public consultation found more than 80pc were in favour of the eco-friendly move.
Capel Street will now be the longest pedestrianised street in the capital, longer than both Grafton Street and Henry Street.
A cycle lane will flow through the street, stretching from Parnell Street and Ryder’s Row to Strand Street.
Delivery vehicles will be able to access shops and restaurants that line the street from 6am to 11am daily, after which bollards will prevent entry.
Traffic will be permitted to cross the road where there is an existing Luas line from Mary’s Abbey.
