LIMERICK City and County Council is looking to make major changes to one of the main roads through Moyross.

The local authority intends to upgrade 200 meters of Moyross Avenue between the Sarsfield Gardens junction and the western boundary of the Corpus Christi Primary School.

The plans would see a realignment of Moyross Avenue through lands owned by the Corpus Christi Parish Church and Corpus Christi Primary School, while also reducing the width of the road carriageway to six metres.

A new ‘raised speed table’ would also feature at the proposed new entrance to Corpus Christi Primary School, in order to slow the speed of passing traffic.

A raised speed table is a larger than average speed bump to help slow cars down.

The council also plans to install parallel set down parking spaces on both sides of Moyross Avenue, as well as the construction of 1.8 metre wide cycle tracks, and two metre wide footpaths on both sides.

Replacement car parking spaces will be provided to the rear of Corpus Christi Parish Church, and associated landscaping works will also take place.

The works are due to be carried out in the townland of Ballynanty More.

According to Limerick City and County Council: “It is determined that there is no likelihood of significant effects on the environment arising from the proposed development.”

The plans can be viewed at the council offices at Merchant’s Quay until March 20, with the deadline for making submissions on the plans set as April 3 at 4pm.
