There was a time when children walked or cycled to school.

Any attempt by the government or local authorities to encourage either is usually labelled as Green Party quackery.

The difference (in normal times) between schools out/schools in traffic is night and day in my experience. Forget your bypass, knock down a few walls between estates and stick in a 2m cycle lane on the busy routes and watch the journey times for everyone fall off a cliff.

In case you're wondering where the "active travel" funding is being used. The mind boggles.

Totally expected to be honest, what is that saying about leopard and spots.
Always get sense they are making up stuff as they along when you see implementation attempts like this, they have no template, or built up knowledge of how to approach a problem.
Design manuals exist but they just don't see to use them.
Do any of the people in the top positions in City Hall live here in the City?
Does City Manager live in Galway (City or County) or even Connacht?

I've been pushing for a long time with a lot of councillors, to promote a weekly active travel day in the councils. A day when the car park closes and if the staff wish to drive and pay for parking they are welcome to, but they should also be encouraged to engage in other means of transportation to see what the experience is like for the regular Joe and Joleen Soap

Seeing this all over the place aswell, some kind of dirty protest by the Council hoping they'll be told to rip them all up? It looks brutal anyway, especially anywhere historic:

Not random at all.

Walk down Shop St during the delivery window and you'll appreciate them.

No standard at all followed for bollards, 3/4 different types within a stones throw of each other. They " need " for them on Shop Street - a pedestrianized street 21/24 hours of the day shows they have NOT addressed the root cause of the problem they are trying to address.
