Transport & Traffic Assessments

    Little Island is a significant employment location in Metropolitan Cork which has been heavily developed, particularly in view of its strategic location adjacent to the national road network and central location in Metropolitan Cork. Access to Little Island is limited and most travel to and from Little Island during peak periods is by car. The road network is also restricted and the public transport offering for the area is limited. Little Island therefore suffers from severe peak hour traffic congestion.

    This project involved a comprehensive study of the existing situation and developing and assessing various masterplan strategies for improving the traffic situation to, from and within Little Island. This included facilitating intermodal transfers between rail, bus, bicycle and private car.

    Cork County Council commissioned us to develop a Transportation Strategy for Little Island to identify the various means by which access to and from Little Island and within the island itself can operate on a sustainable basis.
