Galway Integrated Transport Management Programme – National Transport Authority
The National Transport Authority in conjunction with Galway City Council developed an Integrated Transport Management Programme (ITMP) for the Galway City area that sets down a framework for how Galway City’s transport network can be redefined to address the current transportation issues for all modes, as well as cater for future increases in travel demand. SYSTRA, as advisors to the NTA, provided transport modelling and appraisal assistance in the preparation of the ITMP.
SYSTRA was responsible for undertaking a range of tasks including travel demand analysis for all modes, advice on bus operations and network development, preparation of appraisal criteria and assessment process, advice on Park and Ride and demand management measures, participation and contribution to project team workshops and solution development. Combined transport strategies were examined and assessed by SYSTRA using the new NTA West Regional Transport model and the results were used to inform the ITMP.
