A trial of new blockades on the road in the form of bollards and plant boxes at Grangegorman Lower, Dublin 7.

The worm may have turned on the motorist.

But can a cyclist have too many bollards?

Via The Dublin Inquirer:

The nine bollards with five plant boxes directly behind them is a traffic calming measure known as filtered permeability.

Filtered permeability measures are used to stop cars using a road while still allowing cyclists and pedestrians to pass through.

“Drivers are no longer able to use this route as a shortcut from North Circular Road to the Quays, and vice versa,” a spokesperson for the Dublin City Council Covid Mobility team said in a trial update which was presented at the June Central Area Committee meeting.

So far, the installation of the bollards has divided the opinions of locals. Some say that the street is safer and more pleasant while others say they are struggling to get around and add that they were not consulted on their implementation
