Dublin City Council are extending the Capel St/Parliament St weekend traffic free streets initiative for a further four weeks until September 26, writes Amy Rohu. 

The decision to extend the traffic-free weekends was made by Dublin City Council management following representations by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Alison Gilliland, and her fellow Councillors.

Speaking about the decision, the Lord Mayor said: “This trial has been hugely successful so far. It makes perfect sense for it to continue until the end of September. I am delighted that, with the support of cross-party colleagues, we have been able to secure this extension. I would encourage anyone who hasn’t already done so to come in and see for yourself what a fabulous outdoor initiative this is.”

A period of public consultation to ascertain people’s views on all perspectives of the traffic-free streets scheme has commenced this week and submissions can be made online at The public consultation was part of the original plan for the initiative once it finished and this will now run until September 20.

Dublin City Council will also engage specifically with residents and businesses in the immediate area.
