AFTER several delays, An Bord Pleanála has set a deadline of January 28 for its decision on planning permission for the new Foynes to Limerick road which includes a bypass of Adare village.
The proposed 35km development is designed to ease traffic congestion and connect the Port of Foynes to the motorway network.
It includes 15.6km of dual carriageway from Foynes to Rathkeale, and almost 2km of single carriageway between Ballyclogh and Askeaton.
There’ll also be 17.5km of motorway from Rathkeale to the existing motorway near Limerick City, and a service area for Heavy Goods Vehicles near Foynes.
Limerick City and County Council applied to An Bord Pleanála for planning permission for the scheme in December 2019.
