€21 million allocated to Limerick Council for roads in 2023

Cllr Dan McSweeney.

A BUDGET of €21 million from the National Transport Authority (NTA) was allocated to Limerick City and County Council for 2023.

In response to a question from Fine Gael councillor Dan McSweeney at a meeting of the local authority, councillors were told that this funding will see delivery of a number of schemes in urban areas which will introduce traffic calming measures.

“In addition to the NTA allocation, Limerick City and County Council’s own resources budget is used to fund traffic calming measures when deemed appropriate by the municipal district and when in compliance with the traffic calming policy.”

“Such works include driver feedback signs, speed ramps, and junction improvement works,” Máiréad Corrigan of the Council’s Transportation and Mobility Directorate explained.
