Cycling Campaign

Do you think we need more cycle lanes and safer roads for pedestrians and cyclists in Galway? Do you think we need more cycle parking to replace those taken out by the council in 2015!? Well here’s a campaign our friends in the Dublin Cycling Campaign are organising – please share with anyone you know in Dublin!

Galway’s Traffic Problems

Drivers in Galway spent an average of 43.5 hours sitting in rush hour traffic last year. This surpasses Dublin where drivers there spent 31.4 hours sitting in traffic jams. Cork drivers spent an average of 24.5 hours in traffic last year.

The amount of time Galway drivers spend in traffic jams equates to more than the amount of hours in an average working week. Galway ranks 61st in the overall cities ranking, dropping down two places from 59th in 2015.

The survey was conducted by Inrix, a provider of traffic and travel information worldwide. Yesterday, Tuesday, it published its new ‘Traffic Scorecard’ and Galway was one of 10 cities and towns surveyed. Dundalk and Mullingar came out best, with drivers there spending 6.5 and 5.5 hours respectively last year in congested traffic.

Salutations friends! For those not in the know, Ireland has been hit with a Red Weather Warning between 1pm and 4pm on Saturday 29th February. Because of this, all buildings on campus MUST BE CLOSED, and therefore so shall we, so long as the warning remains red.

In Short...

There will be no DIY workshop on Saturday 29th of February unless there is an update to Orange Weather status. Stay tuned for more details and apologies for the late notice.
