Examining Park and Ride in Galway

Irish Contracts 2011

Austrian Contracts 2011

As a result of reported traffic problems at Briarhill in Galway our group

decided to examine the project to replace the Lynch roundabout with smart traffic lights. What we

found out is as follows: Three separate contracts were completed in 2011 in relation to this project by

John Madden and Sons Ltd. Road construction works at a cost of €846,797 and €939,688 were carried

out and Traffic Lights were put in place at a cost of €325,386.

The traffic light junction should prioitise cyclists and buses to reward travellers who use sustainable modes of transport as the biggest culprits regarding the major traffic congestion within the city are single occupancy drivers.
