Version 1: ’24 hour vehicular deliveries and access from Dame Street: between South Great Georges Street and Anglesea Street area. Concept aerial view of space in use, looking west over College Green and Dame Street.’
Version 2: ‘Vehicular deliveries and access from Dame Street: between South Great George’s Street and Anglesea Street area from 6am to 11am, and traffic-free after 11am. Concept aerial view of space in use, looking west over College Green and Dame Street.’
UPDATE: versions 1 and 2 compared.

…Dublin Cycling Campaign tweetz:
There are two versions (above) of the proposal: One which allows 24hr access to Dame Street for deliveries etc, and the other which would restrict vehicular access on Dame Street to 6am-11am. A two-way segregated cycle route along Dame Street is provided in both options.
Both proposals include the pedestrianisation of much of Dame Street from College Green as far as South Great George’s Street.
The proposal is strikingly ambitious, but that is exactly what’s required considering the social, economic, health & environmental challenges we face. What do you think?
