pearse street, macken st, bridge, guild st, seville place, portland row, ncr, dorset street, drumcondra.
It has to be arranged to dissuade eastlink bridge traffic, otherwise it will just suck up all the toll dodgers and congest the city centre with traffic that previously skirted along east wall rd and sandymount strand.
It's going to be hard to put double deck buses across it with all the low bridges from the DART line. There might be a market for a route that crosses the DART line at Merrion Gates.
thanks Frank. might try it this evening.
just in from DCC.
New Traffic Information Service to aid motorists
Dublin City Councilâ€™s Roads and Traffic Department are playing a key role in a new Traffic Information Service to aid motorists in finding the best routes to take throughout the City. The RDS-TMC (Traffic Message Channel) technology will be demonstrated on Wednesday 16th December in the Wood Quay Venue of the Dublin City Council Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin at 11am.
The TMC service will be available to users of enabled satellite navigation devices and integrated car navigation systems. Unlike existing traffic bulletins, TMC messages will appear on the userâ€™s satellite navigation device and will not only show the nature of a traffic problem when it occurs but will also show its exact location while also providing an alternative route to avoid the traffic issue and reach the desired destination. Other information such as weather warnings will also be included to make motorists aware of possible dangerous road conditions.
The Traffic Control Centre at the City Council will be the main source of traffic information for Dublin. With access to more than 200 cameras, direct contact with the Gardai, feedback from Dublin Bus and members of the public, the City Council has the most accurate and up to the minute picture of Dublin City traffic.
Brendan O'Brien, Head of Technical Services, DCC Traffic Division, commented, â€œthis service adds to the existing channels that Dublin City Council use to provide traffic information to the public, such as the dedicated radio station â€œLive Driveâ€ 103.2FM and the SMS and e-mail traffic alert system provided at http://www.dublinregionaltraffic.ie
