The Canal Cordon Report 2021 reports the trends in mode share of vehicles and people crossing the Canal Cordon from 2006 to 2021.
Since 1980, Dublin City Council (DCC) has been conducting traffic counts at 33 locations around the cordon formed by the Royal and Grand Canals. The counts are conducted during the month of November each year.
Since 1997 the counts have been conducted over the AM peak period between 07:00 and 10:00.
Between 1997 and 2009, the Dublin Transportation Office (DTO) collected data from a number of sources on people crossing the Canal Cordon into Dublin’s City Centre in the AM peak period between 07:00 and 10:00. The National Transport Authority (NTA) subsumed the DTO in 2009, and has continued to collate this data on an annual basis.
Combining the two sets of data enables the tracking of trends in the modes of travel that people are using to travel into the City Centre for the period 2006-2021.
