College Green pedestrian plaza refusal ‘welcomed’ – Mary Lou McDonald TD

17 October, 2018 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Central, Mary Lou McDonald has welcomed the news that An Bord Pleanála has refused plans for a pedestrian plaza at College Green in the city centre.

Deputy McDonald said:

“The plans to pedestrianise College Green were not feasible and they failed to address the real impact to traffic, particularly for buses and taxi drivers.

“There has already been ongoing disruption in Dublin since the Luas Cross-City was introduced in December.

“College Green in particular has been something of a nightmare for commuters, and Dublin Bus services have been seriously impacted.”
