    The worst road in Dublin for cyclists due to the sunken and smooth sewer covers and potholes all over the place.

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      It’s a crazy street for cyclists, pedestrians and bus/tram commuters alike. There is a dangerous bottleneck of all road users down near the Trinity front gates. The paths can’t even handle the queue of bus commuters, passing pedestrians and cyclists forced to walk with bike. A tram-centric plan for Dame Street would work, with a parallel wide cycle lane – no buses, no cars.

    I’ve a friend who works in the landscape architecture/city planning adjacent sector, I was talking to him about College Green over a pint there a few weeks ago. He was telling me about all these modelling tools they have, a whole suite of simulation software to model pedestrian flow, traffic, public transport under a whole range of conditions. Apparently if you take College Green as it is now and plug it into the system the solution you get is “clusterfupp”, so they would have known all along that it was going to turn out awfully.
