Dublin/London - The local authorities of Tower Hamlets in London and Drumcondra/Finglas in Dublin have been rolling out neighbourhood transport schemes to reduce car use and adapt their transport systems to favour greener modes of travel.
Research has shown that the introduction of Low-Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) and Active Travel Infrastructure (ATI) has reduced pollution, congestion and crime in community's. However, our research indicates that these schemes have predominantly been introduced to middle-class areas.
By mapping the existence of ATI and LTNs against the deprivation index this project will establish whether there is a correlation between the wealth of a community and its ability to implement car-reduction schemes. If a correlation is established, the project will decipher the reasons why.
