Proposals to make Douglas Street a one-way system have been dismissed amid fears it would result in increased speed and traffic volumes on the street. Douglas Street one-way traffic system dismissedPROPOSALS to introduce a one-way system on Douglas Street have been dismissed by officials at City Hall amid fears that it would result in increased speed and traffic volumes on the narrow street. A study into traffic flows on the street, between January 19 and February 16, showed that the vast majority of traffic moves eastbound on the narrow street, which includes a large number of bars, restaurants and other businesses. It said: “If westbound traffic is prohibited along the length of the street, then the alternate access for the majority of the traffic will be via Sawmill Street or South Terrace and onto White Street, Rutland Street, Mary Street, Dunbar Street, etc. Alternatively, traffic coming from the southside is likely to use Evergreen Street, a section of which is extremely narrow and difficult to access for larger vehicles.”
