Traffic Management at Intel Ireland

Intel strives to keep any impact to our surrounding community to the minimum possible. We continually monitor traffic and work to alleviate traffic levels in and around our site in a number of different ways:

  • For a number of years, Intel has had a dedicated traffic management team on site with the purpose of monitoring traffic and making changes to the traffic management on site as necessary
  • Intel engage with Kildare County Council, Local District Councilors and the Community Advisory Panel (CAP) find out more: who provide feedback and input on a broad range of issues affecting the local area including traffic
  • ‘Mobility Management’ Program on site. As part of this program, Intel has implemented a number of successful measures to encourage single occupancy car trips to the site and decrease the overall number of cars arriving to the Leixlip site. Find out more information on this initiative below
  • Number of security personnel managing incoming traffic

Works taking place on R148 Leixlip to Maynooth road


Intel also carries out regular independent studies on traffic levels in the north Kildare region. Through these studies, we have noted that there is a significant increase in overall traffic levels in this region (20% since 2016). As a result of this, our traffic management team has implemented a number of additional measures on our site to alleviate any impact we may have:

  • Increased personnel on the ground directing traffic around the site and into free carpark spaces
  • Staggered delivery times for larger vehicles
  • Increased security staff and equipment in order to reduce waiting times at barriers
