THE Childers Road Active Travel Scheme was officially launched last week, completed by Limerick City and County Council and funded by the Department of Transport.

The scheme saw the creation of a new 1.5km stretch of cycle lane in the city from the Ballinacurra Road junction to the Roxboro Roundabout.

The works included cycle lane separators, junction tightening, accessibility improvements, raised tables, and new pedestrian crossing points at the Roxboro Roundabout.

The project also included safety works at Our Lady Queen of Peace NS, the Mid West School for the Deaf, and Our Lady of Lourdes NS.

Further schemes are in the works, including on Father Russell Road in Raheen and Plassey Park in Castletroy, scheduled for completion later in 2024.
