What is the survey about ?
The NUI Galway is committed to being an environmentally responsible organisation. We are striving to reach environmental objectives and targets in a number of areas throughout the organisation, including those affected by staff and student travel. With a view to reducing the environmental impact of travelling to, from and within the campus, we are currently reviewing our Travel Plan. Originally produced in 2006, the Plan promotes the use of more sustainable modes of transport as opposed to single occupancy car trips, including buses, trains, cycling, walking and car sharing/pooling.
Why do it ?
It is important that we consider travel issues for a number of reasons. At a global and national level the changes we make can help reduce the impact upon traffic levels and the environment that our journeys have, which include: consumption of fossil fuels, harmful emissions and traffic congestion. A quality Travel Plan will help to ease parking pressures on the NUI Galway campus, which is but one obvious symptom of our over reliance on the private car, and it will allow us to better predict our future transport requirements, whilst at the same time saving time and money.
How does this survey help ?
Information from the travel survey will help us further develop our Travel Plan, both by establishing current travel patterns, and to establish recent trends to help us to plan for the future development of the University. Your response is important as it will help us to identify and address the key issues and to develop appropriate solutions. The survey is being undertaken by the NUI Galway Buildings Office with the assistance of qualified and experienced transport planning and engineering consultants. If you have any queries about the survey please contact: Alan Lipscombe (Traffic and Transport Consultant, email: firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sinead Higgins (NUIG Buildings Office, email: email@example.com).
