Streets being pedestrianised include Princes Street, Tuckey Street, Pembroke Street, Caroline Street, Little Anne Street, Little Cross Street and Harley Street, while Emmet Place and Paul Street are partially pedestrianised with local access allowed.
In addition to significant pedestrianisation in the city, the programme will invest in the city’s cycling infrastructure. New cycle lanes, repairing existing routes and the construction of 43 bike racks that can accommodate approximately 500 bikes are some of the additional measures announced in the plan.
Under the new initiative, audiences visiting Cork city centre can avail of more alfresco dining and transport options. The trial on Princes Street proved very popular with the area bolstering footfall and dwell time.
With over two thousand OOH panels in Cork the possibilities for targeting Corkonians are endless. Advertisers can surround points of interest or specific locations around shops, restaurants and even tourist spots.
Studies Point to In-Store Preference for Shoppers
Despite record levels of online grocery shopping in recent months, it appears that Dubliners of all age groups and genders are keen to do the bulk of their grocery shopping in-store. Research we released this week indicates that more than three quarters of Dubliners intend to carry out the majority of their grocery shopping in-store over the next six months.
At a topline level, 76% of all respondents said they intend to shop primarily in-store in the short to medium term, with 11% indicating a preference for delivery and just 5% opting for click and collect. 8% of the representative sample think they will adopt a mix of online and physical shopping in the coming period.
The study highlights a gender difference though, with males more inclined towards online options with 24% intending to use delivery or click and collect, compared to 9% of females. Younger age groups are also more likely to be ordering online with 26% of 16-24s indicating that preference compared to 9% among the oldest group in the sample, 45-54s.
