Car restrictions throught Dublin city are due to affect traffic volumns once we start to return to work May 18th. The plan will also see Dublin’s College Green being pedestrianised – and cars restricted throughout the city – under plans to reopen the city centre as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
Describing the proposal as a “temporary mobility plan” which would be introduced over the next three to six months in line with the Government’s road map for reopening society, published last week. Dublin City Council’s traffic department said “the same level of vehicular traffic cannot be accommodated in the city as before”, and in a number of locations “motorised vehicles” would have to banned after 11am each day. It is understood the measures will remain in place for at least 12 to 18 months, with some likely to be retained on a permanent basis.
