Five Cities Demand Management Study

The development of the Five Cities Demand Management Study is a result of the urgent requirement to reduce transport-related greenhouse gas emissions and address rising concerns in relation to urban air quality. In addition, the Study reflects the need to manage the impacts of urban congestion and improve the quality of life for people living, visiting, working and studying in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford.
