I am delighted to confirm that the Grangegorman “filtered permeability” project will be retained permanently. The project was voted on at today’s Central Area Committee and was supported by the majority of the Councillors.

Grangegorman Filtered Permeability to be made permanent

This project is an important step in the right direction of traffic-calmed inner city streets, safer walking and cycling, cleaner air and an improved public realm which will benefit us all but most especially children.
