Project Strategy


Cork is the fastest growing city region in Ireland with a projected 50% increase in its population up to Year 2040. That scale of growth requires new approaches to traffic management systems in the city and the greater Metropolitan area.

The diversion of through traffic away from the city centre, the creation of priority bus corridors leading to more reliable public transport and the facilitation of walking and cycling options are imperatives if the city is to function well and prosper.

These objectives form an important part of a new and emerging vision for the city which is grounded in sustainability.
