As city and town councils look to improve active travel and street facilities, street infrastructure will significantly change across Ireland.
Active travel has become more prevalent in the last few years, with many people seeking to reduce emissions, reduce the need for car use, and find new, healthier ways to commute.

Active travel is defined as "travelling with a purpose", mainly those who commute for work and school. The same active travel systems will aim to create safer road spaces for cyclists, scooter users, walkers and motorists and can significantly reduce road traffic accidents. Moreover, it can help reduce traffic congestion and free up public transport for those who most need it.

Street furniture can also boost local streetscapes, including public seating, litter bins, planters, and notice boards. In addition, street furniture will provide instant benefits to pedestrians, encouraging more use of town and city environments while creating more vibrant, colourful social settings.
