The Quays

The recent Budget/IMF protests provided the possibility to see the North Quays without traffic.

What do you think…would they make a pleasant place to sit out in front of a cafe, restaurant or bar?

What would they be like if we didn’t have those solid walls, but instead railings or glass balustrades (so you could better get a sense of the river)? I.e. like the boardwalk but without the narrow feeling that they often have, and with decent width to allow us to create decent spaces.

Would they make nice playgrounds or skateboard parks or places to bowl along the canal?

Perhaps a second row of trees?

If we felt it was worth aiming for, how do we ensure that we get there?
