Why does the size of the footpath matter if the traffic lanes remain in tact?

Default Fake Arithmetic Geometry and News

They are not widening the bridge. The extra width of the footpaths, and Cycle Lane, are being subtracted from the previous Road area. At least one vehicle Lane is being removed.
There is a headline article about Panaban, written by an admin here.
"Private cars are banned from just ONE street for THREE hours every day. ONE STREET!"
Ahem, Oliver Plunkett Street.......

Which is it being narrowed or removed?

St Patrick's bridge is 18 metres wide, you say 7 mtrs is footpath so 11 metres left for 3 lanes at circa 3 mtrs per lane and 2 mtrs for a cycle lane. What am I missing?

Default Even Worse

Not sure if this shows the most recent version, but it should install some sense of reality to the numbers.
Look at the picture. The new footpath on the visible left seems to be the same size. The right one has been increased to nearly 5 Metres. Covering more than the cycle lane in the pic.
What is missing Earl, is some simple Cop On.

Just as I thought, you don't actually have a glimmer of what you are on about.

This is more recent. They are replacing the Bus Lane with extra obviously unnecessary FootPath. Dangerously squeezing Buses, Cars, Cyclists into the tiny area left.

You just said they are removing the bus lane before you edited your post, do you actually know what is happening or just making shite up on the fly? It's not a tiny area, it's 11 mtrs at least and that is taking you dubious figure of the footpaths being 7 mtrs wide

Default Arithmetic

Given that you approve of a 5 Metre wide footpath, I suspect your 11 Metres is incorrect. I will be passing there later, we shall see some real numbers.

You are missing some reality.
A Bus or Truck Mirror to Mirror is up to 3.2 Metres wide. A traffic lane, needs to be let's say absolute minimum 3.5 M. The earlier picture with the 2M wide car corroborates this.
So your imaginary three lanes would require 10.5 Metres. No room for cyclists. The new plan removes the previous Bus Lane, more than doubles a footpath, adds a one way narrow Cycle Lane.

You are missing some reality.
A Bus or Truck is about 3 Metres wide. A traffic lane, needs to be let's say 3.7 M.
So your imaginary three lanes would require 11.1 Metres. No Cycle Lane.

What? I am using you figures, ya imbecile. Patricks Bridge is 18.5 mtrs wide, that is a recorded fact. The footpath width as you claimed is 7mtrs, now surely you can do the simple math.
A traffic lane doesn't need to be 3.7 mtrs wide either, more spoofery.

By the way I never said I approve, i asked what the problem was if the current 3 traffic lanes are unaffected by wider footpaths
