FRANCIS STREET

FRANCIS STREET [SEPTEMBER 2012]

I lived on a street off Francis street for a few months about thirty years ago and I liked the area.

The next time you visit Francis Street it will be very different to what is was back in September 2012 when I took these photographs.

In 2019 it was announced that work would begin on a new-look public realm for Francis Street. Following on from design workshops and a successful Part VIII planning consent in 2017, the project is now set to be completed this year. While construction work had originally been expected to start in March 2020 the Covid 19 Emergency led to delays.

With a strong emphasis on pedestrians, the plan envisaged the widened pavements and new threshold spaces to the front of the Iveagh Market and St Nicholas de Myra Church. The awkward widening and narrowing of the carriageway will give way to a consistent width and measures to reduce speeds and allow for more relaxed cycling and easier crossing. Changes to car parking and loading arrangements, 20 new street trees and landscaped areas, sustainable urban drainage measures (SUDs), new street lighting, street furniture and utilities will all serve to create a much improved street and establish Francis Street as a destination.

I USE THIS AND IT IS ALREADY FULL

One of the biggest ongoing problems that I have is storage and the problems gets worse by the year. 4 Years ago I purchased two LaCie 8TB thunder bolt drives and eighteen months later I purchased a 12TB drive and then in August of 2019 I needed a 20TB unit and it is already full. I do have an aggressive backup policy which does require a lot of storage so i suppose that I should not be surprised. I should mention that I use Amazon Photos and currently am using 12TB of online storage.


I REALLY DO NEED A SOLUTION
