- Dublin City Council is innovating its kerbside restriction management process with AppyWay’s suite of management tools, aptly named Traffic Suite
- By transforming how they manage their kerbside the City Council will be able to better understand how their kerbside is being used and improve data accuracy
- The adoption of Traffic Suite, in particular the management tool Mapper, is enabling the City Council to rapidly streamline an outdated and often time-consuming process
- Now live with the solution, Dublin City Council has much more control over their kerbside assets and is empowered with better data to make more informed decisions
Monday 12th December 2022, London, UK, AppyWay the intelligent kerbside organisation empowering local governments to kick-start decarbonisation efforts, has today announced the adoption of its kerbside management solution, Traffic Suite, by its first international customer, Dublin City Council.
Dublin City Council approached AppyWay to transform their restriction management process to better understand how their kerbside is being used and to ensure they have more control over their kerbside assets and restriction data. The key goal for the City Council was to look at new and innovative ways to encourage the efficient and sustainable use of loading bays as a part of the Senator Project.
The Senator project is funded under European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and aims to find possible solutions to solve logistics challenges in urban areas. Dublin, as one of the two Urban Living Labs, is providing a pilot site where solutions will be tested, readjusted, and improved to fit the urban environment.
The adoption of Traffic Suite, in particular, the Mapper solution for kerbside management allows the City Council to manage their restrictions in Mapper from a highly accurate data set. This was made possible by an extensive kerbside restriction survey by Cyclomedia.
Now live with Traffic Suite, Dublin City Council is exploring a number of the benefits that digitised, map-based restriction management can bring. This would include exploring huge efficiencies within their management process and workflows, and improving accuracy of restriction records. The City Council have also found wide-ranging opportunities for data sharing across services and external mobility operators which includes the Senator Partners for the Senator platform development.
Dan Hubert, Founder & CEO, AppyWay comments,
”We’re thrilled have Dublin City Council onboard and proving the benefits of the Traffic Suite and Mapper to an international audience. The outdated and cumbersome management of kerbside restrictions is a global issue, and one that is causing decarbonisation efforts to stagnate. Without streamlined restriction management processes, and easily understood and sharable restriction data, councils are frequently left struggling to rollout initiatives such as electric vehicle charge points, active travel promotion, or create more efficient, sustainable access to loading bays.
”With Dublin City Council we’re able to put them on the front-foot of kerbside management, empowering them with the tools, processes, and open data they need to make smarter kerbside decisions and make the Senator Urban Living Lab a success.
Jamie Cudden, Smart City Programme Manager, Dublin City Council quotes,
”With increasing ecommerce and thriving businesses, the city centre of Dublin is becoming more and more congested, and it is necessary for us to understand and manage the kerb assets more efficiently using digital tools. The kerbside management can be transformational for the city. We are delighted to partner with AppyWay and look forward to piloting the mapper solution to digitise the streets of Dublin.
