Galway Transport Forum

How gridlock can occur
The Mayor of Galway has launched the Galway Transport Forum, to provide:

"interactive and inclusive engagement through an advisory group [about] current traffic congestion"

It will be carrying out a range of surveys over the next few weeks, and has a forum where you can contribute suggestions:   register on, to participate.

Note:  this is apparently separate from the Galway Traffic Forum
