CATHAOIRLEACH of the Metropolitan District Cllr Olivia O’Sullivan (FG) has welcomed a new active travel scheme for Brookville Avenue in Clareview on the north of the city.

The proposed new scheme will involve the installation of a safe segregated two-way cycleway from Ivan’s Cross to TUS, where it will link with the TUS Moylish to Limerick City Active Travel Scheme. A new footpath will also be installed.

“Brookville Avenue is a beautiful wide tree-lined avenue that connects the Ennis Road at Ivan’s Cross to the roundabout at TUS Moylish. It is a busy thoroughfare but also sits in the middle of the Clareview residential neighbourhood. The new scheme should make the area safer, as well as offering students to TUS a safe cycling route to college, which will be connected with the wider North Side Cycle Network,” Cllr O’Sullivan told the Limerick Post.

“In addition, this scheme will involve the installation of a new toucan crossing before the roundabout, and a raised junction mid-way on Brookville Avenue. Requests have also been made for the scheme to look at making the junction at the New Link Road safer for pedestrians.”
Cllr O’Sullivan explained that the scheme would not impact greenery in the area.
“Can I reassure residents in the area that no trees need removal for these works, and any daffodils that are removed during the construction phase will be replaced as closely as possible,” she said.
