Emmet Place the latest area of the city to be pedestrianised

Emmet Place is the latest area of the city to be pedestrianised and is today closed to cars from the entrance to the Crawford Art Gallery to Lavitts Quay.

It's part of the City Council's plan to temporarily pedestrianise sections of the city centre to facilitate physical distancing and support local businesses during Covid-19.

Other streets that have been pedestrianised include Princes St, Pembroke St, Tuckey St and Harley St. 

The Marina riverside amenity has also been closed to cars while the western end of Paul Street can no longer be used as a through road with local residents only allowed access to the street in vehicles.

The local authority is also offering free street furniture licences so that traders can use exterior space to serve customers.
