Please support the South Circular Road to City Centre active travel scheme

08 November 2022


The SOUTH CIRCULAR RD TO CITY CENTRE ACTIVE TRAVEL SCHEME is closing its submissions at 4 pm this Thursday. This is one of the three primary level arterial routes to deliver the new cycling and walking network for Limerick City. It is essential to the liveability of our city to get this fully supported and across the line in the consultation process.

This ambitious scheme will serve the communities of Raheen, Dooradoyle, Mungret, Rosbrien, O’Connell Avenue and the South Circular Road with a high-quality active travel corridor into the city to connect to other schemes.

The South Circular Road is a place of education for 6,880 primary, secondary and third-level students that currently are locked out of active travel due to a lack of infrastructure and continuous daily congestion on the route. By providing safe segregate infrastructure this scheme will provide autonomy to young people as it allows them to commute independently eliminating the need for escort journeys

Increased cycling provision makes our cities more inclusive, resilient, sustainable and healthy. The higher the modal share of walking, cycling and public transport the more sustainable the transport system is enabling us to move closer to our transport carbon reduction target.
