The pedestrianisation of two streets in Dublin city centre is being extended by four weeks, Dublin City Council has announced.

Last night, the council said on Twitter that the pedestrianisation of Capel Street and Parliament Street was due to end this weekend.

This afternoon the local authority said the trial will now run until 26 September following representations by councillors including the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Alison Gilliland.

The first day of Dublin City Council’s traffic-free trial in College Green, Dublin 2, on July 21 

Ronan Early, in The Times Ireland edition, reports:

Dublin City Council spent €17,000 renting metal barriers used during the pedestrianisation of College Green over the summer.

Vehicles were banned from Dame Street for three Sundays, July 21, 28 and August 4, as a pilot project.

…A freedom of information request by The Times has revealed that the council paid €17,000 to Actavo, the engineering services group owned by the businessman Denis O’Brien, to rent the barriers.

…Neasa Hourigan, a Green Party councillor and member of the group Streets are for People, said she could not understand why the council needed to spend almost €6,000 a day on barriers to pedestrianise a street.
