Traffic-free trial on Capel Street and Parliament Street

Councillor Heney wishes to advise constituents that from tomorrow, the 11th of June 2021, Capel St. and Parliament St. will be made traffic-free on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from 6.30pm to 11.30pm for a period of 6 weekends on a trial basis.

This is another project by Dublin City Council’s Office of City Recovery to support business in the City and facilitate outdoor dining.

Once the trial is complete Dublin City Council will assess the outcome.

This is in addition to the increased pedestrian space already created by build-outs on Capel St. and the closure of Capel St. between Parnell St. and Ryders Row, which will be closed to all vehicular traffic 24/7 from 7am tomorrow, the 11th of June.

This traffic-free trial will also effectively make the following streets traffic-free at these times:

Parnell St. from Ryders Row to Capel St.
Little Britain St. from Campbell’s Court to Capel St.
Mary St. from Jervis Lane Upper to Capel St.
Mary St. Little from Anglesea Row to Capel St.
Mary’s Abbey from Aran St. to Capel St.
Abbey St. from Jervis Lane Upper to Capel St.
Strand St. Little from Aran St. to Capel St.
Strand St. from Jervis St. to Capel St.
