Dublin City Council is set to unveil detailed plans on pedestrianising Dublin city's Capel Street in March.
Councillors and the public can expect changes to be implemented by the middle of the year.
Detailed plans for Capel Street are due in March.
95% Dubliners support improved pedestrianisation here and the Council promised to bring forward proposals to deliver that.
Hopefully we will see long term improvements in place by this summer. 🤞🥂🌞 pic.twitter.com/qBNQD4gv7k

The Council ran a public survey last year.
It found that 8 in 10 people wanted a permanent car ban along the street.
The Council ran a trial on the system last summer.
The pedestrianisation of Capel Street and Parliament Street makes Dublin feel like the city it has always been trying to be. Rare to experience a similar atmosphere in Ireland. pic.twitter.com/UIRjkxFmPe
