“Great news” for Galway City as Cross Street is pedestrianised

The pedestrianisation of Cross Street has been described as “great news” for Galway city.

Work to pedestrianise the street began today and Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan MEP took to social media to express his delight at the move.

Cllr Owen Hanley said that it is a “little strange to see”, but that “opening up our city is so worth it.”

“People are still walking on the footpaths so it will take some time to get used to it, but the culture change will be welcome,” he said.

Cross Street’s pedestrianisation is a temporary measure, but Cllr Hanley said if it’s welcomed by everyone, he can envisage it becoming permanent.

The pedestrianisation of Middle Street will be looked at in phase 2 of the Galway City Council Mobility Team’s plans.
