Intro Text 

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council installed state-of-the-art technology at three locations along George’s St, Dún Laoghaire in May 2021. The technology analyses road user movements on a continuous 24/7/365 basis and provides highly accurate, robust data on footfall flows and movement patterns. The counters are located at:

  • George’s St Upper
  • Marine Road junction
  • George’s St Lower

The sensors are able to automatically recognise and provide data for different road user classifications including: pedestrian movements, cyclists, cars, motorbikes, vans, lorries, HGVs and buses. No images or personal data, including mobile phone data, is captured or stored in the process.

Historical footfall information is available via our interactive Footfall Dashboard, or you can scroll down to see previous months Footfall analysis of pedestrian data for Upper and Lower George’s St below.
