UM partnered with ARUP to develop concept design proposals for the Main Street in Carrigaline, as part of the bigger Transport and Public Realm Enhancement Project for the whole town.
The project vision is to “provide the framework for an integrated transport network for Carrigaline with a focus on rejuvenating the town centre, creating a vibrant environment connecting with enhanced cycle and pedestrian amenities for residents and promoting connectivity with surrounding communities.”
The consented plans for Main Street will create a new town centre with a market square, improved access to the river, additional space outside cafes and bars for tables and chairs, new street trees and planting with additional social spaces - all enhanced by reduced vehicle flows and calmed traffic for better walking and cycling.
To create the new public spaces on the street, parking throughout the town was re-organised whilst retaining some strategic spaces for loading and disabled parking.
We are looking forward to working with Arup on the detailed designs for Main Street in the coming months.
