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.
