Mo­bil­ity sur­vey

Irish Examiner - Supplement - - LIFE SCIENCES -

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.

Multi- na­tional firms in the area have very strong links with the Rin­gask­iddy com­mu­nity. For ex­am­ple, the Rin­gask­iddy Res­i­dents Li­ai­son Group, which was set up to cre­ate a frame­work for open dis­cus­sion be­tween in­dus­try and the lo­cal com­mu­nity, is ev­i­dence of this.

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.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Cork com­pa­nies on O’Con­nell Street, Dublin, where they painted a mu­ral to cel­e­brate the launch of an on­line map of Ire­land which show­cases the im­pact that busi­ness has in our com­mu­nity. The map was launched by Busi­ness in the Com­mu­nity Ire­land and rep­re­sent­ing com­pa­nies from Cork were — He­len Moloney from Janssen, Sinead Brady from Pep­sico, Tony Carroll from ESB, Caro­line O’Con­nor from Bord Gáis, and Ali­son McEvoy from Pfizer Health­care.
