The individuals involved in this project are drawn from a number of backgrounds that make them very well positioned to make a meaningful contribution to short term measures that have the potential to improve traffic flow in Galway. For a considerable period of time, Engineers Ireland West Region has had a strong focus on its contribution to the development and sustained growth of the West of Ireland. Transport is an integral part of this growth and a number of members of the West Region Committee are involved in the project. The group also includes individuals with specific transportation expertise. There is strong support from NUI Galway; (i) on the engineering side to address the traffic issues and (ii) from the Digital Enterprise Research Institute bringing best practice in web technologies and smart systems.
