Dublin City Council announced today that it is extending the period of the Grafton St Area Pedestrian Trial until the end of August. 

The council says the decision has been taken in response to the extremely positive feedback received following the first three weekends of the trial.

Furthermore, Dublin City Council say these measures are being taken to support the economic recovery of the city by providing more space for pedestrians during weekends to encourage people to return for shopping and to make use of the many cafes and restaurants in the area.

The locations are:
Anne Street South from the junction of Dawson Street
Duke Street from the junction of Dawson Street
South William Street from the Brown Thomas carpark exit to Chatham Row
Drury Street from Fade Street to the Drury Street carpark
Dame Court from Exchequer street
Dublin City Council has also decided that from next week, 7 day permissions for outdoor tables and chairs will be granted at a number of locations

Access to carparks in the area will continue to be maintained at all times, that all car parks are open. Five disabled parking bays will be moved to alternative locations during the times of the trials. The three disabled parking bays on Drury Street and the one disabled parking bay on Dame Court will be moved to Clarendon Street. The disabled parking bay on South Anne Street will be moved to Molesworth Street.
