Monthly HGV Traffic Levels Across TII’s National Road Network - May 2021
This monthly report monitors Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) activity across a number of strategic locations across TII’s National Road Network, including Dublin Port Tunnel, M50, the M1 near Dublin Airport, M1 at the border with Northern Ireland and the N25 near Rosslare Europort.
Monitoring of HGV activity following the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union provides a useful indicator of the relative activity of ports Ireland versus previous year(s) prior to the COVID 19 pandemic and Brexit. The report monitors volumes during peak the peak activity hours of 5:00AM to 9:00AM in addition to 24 hour volumes. These numbers will fluctuate based on a variety of issues(weather, day of week), but they will give an indication as to potential trends in goods vehicle patterns.
