Dublin streets were not designed for the heavy traffic of the 1970s.

Newsbeat reports on how the banks of the Liffey suffer from daily traffic chaos. Lorry drivers have to manoeuvre their trucks through Victorian gateways designed for horse-drawn drays causing traffic to build up. 

The problem is especially bad in the docklands and Ringsend. Reporter George Devlin asks why regulations have not been introduced to require these entrances to be widened to allow trucks flow in and out of these premises with ease.

If time is money, then it's been criminally squandered all over Dublin through this stupid carry on.

A Newsbeat report by George Devlin broadcast on 22 January 1971.
