A Mobility Survey, which is being coordinated by Smarter Travel Workplaces — part of the National Transport Authority — was recently circulated to all companies in the area seeking information on employee traffic patterns and suggesting possible options for helping to alleviate congestion, both for the period prior to the commencement of construction of the motorway, and during the construction project.

Seamus Fives also points out that local residents too are being very significantly impacted by the increasing traffic congestion.
“We would hope that the final result, in terms of the completed M28, will be consistent with the needs of residents as well as ourselves,” he concluded.
