English Market trader considering closing early amid Patrick Street car ban
The English Market trader says the new ban on private cars on Patrick St has forced him to explore the option changing staff hours.
The new move has been met with stiff opposition from city centre traders who have reported a significant drop in turnover, and footfall with fears mounting for job losses and store closures.
The Chief Executive of Cork City Council spoke out on Cork's RedFM this morning and appealed to traders to allow for a three-month bedding in period before any changes could be explored.
It comes as Bus Eireann released figures today which show that there's been a reduction in travel time since the introduction of the new measure.
However speaking on the Neil Prendeville Show on Cork's RedFM Tom Durcan of Tom Durcan Meats in the English Market says it's just not working for traders, some of whom may not be around in three months time.
