LIMERICK City and County Council has been asked to consider a programme of works on the Fairgreen Road, including traffic management and the installation of a proper footpath from Fairview soccer club to St Patrick’s Road.

Labour Party councillor Conor Sheehan told the council executive that the area is neglected and forgotten about. He asked that the Council Active Travel Department be involved in drawing up a programme of works.

Senior Engineer Hugh McGrath said the installation of meaningful improvements to the footpaths is not currently feasible because of the current two-way traffic management system.

“However, the Council Roads Department will examine the feasibility of introducing a one-way traffic management system on the Fairgreen Road from the Ballysimon Crescent Junction to the St Patrick’s Road junction which would include a public consultation process,” he added.
