Resident in south Dublin appear to be working from home in greater numbers compared to northside commuters, according to the latest canal cordon count.

Most of the biggest falls in last week's report was recorded on southside locations such as Mount St Bridge which is down 36%, Harold's Cross Bridge also down 36%, and Baggot St down 31%.

The largest single reduction in general traffic is on the northside at Mayor St which is down by 48% at the International Financial Services Centre.

However this compares with reductions elsewhere on the northside of just 6% at Parkgate St and 4% at Summerhill.

Car traffic is at 78% of pre-Covid level with a slight reduction last week according to the latest update on mobility measures from Dublin City Council.

However commuter cycling is only at 20% of pre-Covid levels with walking commuters at 30% and public transport at 40%.

Green Party councillor Janet Horner said the usual 7am to 10am count may not capture what is happening because of the change in work patterns.

She said service workers who cannot work from home also have different shift patterns to the normal nine to five.

Independent councillor Mannix Flynn said people coming into Dublin are confused by the complicated traffic system and mixed messages on whether the city is open or not.

He said the city council is "absolutely failing to deliver" on a transport plan with people now using their cars for personal isolation.
