I heard it reported on RTE 2FM that the average Dublin commute time is 54 minutes according to the CSO. So if podcasts are tailored to suit average commute times, Dublin podcasters beware.
“Dubliners love their cars” the commute time has also expanded because of the widening of the commuter belt as the celtic tiger got fat, people also like to drive slowly at rush hour(s) as they are reluctant to arrive at their destination and drivers are so backlogged with podcasts they need to stay in traffic longer (by using roundabouts repeatedly). Commuter Action Front denied that the average journey time increase on daily commutes had anything to do with road transport policy at Government level. The doubling in width of the bridge at the west link toll plaza’s has allowed north bound tailbacks see southbound tailback and vice versa, this has had a calming effect on the daily commuter as they can now see that its not just them in gridlock. Efforts to increase transport spending in this country has been welcomed by Construction Site Spotters Ireland who have been photographing and counting (known as logging) traffic cones on Dublin’s N32 M50 interchange in recent months.
