Limerick Active Travel Launches Virtual Public Consultation Room for Proposed Limerick City Greenway

A virtual public consultation room on the proposed Limerick City Greenway has gone live and offers the public an opportunity to view and comment on the proposed designs. The virtual room will guide people through the proposals for a new fully accessible 6.8km long greenway between the UL Boat Club and Annacotty village and locations in between and will be 3.5 – 4.0m wide.

It is proposed to connect to the existing shared surface from Limerick City and Shannon Fields to the UL Boat Club, and provision has been made to connect to future Greenways in Co. Limerick and Co. Clare.

The project is being delivered by Limerick City and County Council’s Active Travel team and is funded by the National Transport Authority

The current 40km Greenway path through captivating Limerick countryside, offers day-trippers and families the option to explore rural Limerick by cycling running or walking. Following the old Limerick to Kerry railway line, the Greenway seamlessly links the West Limerick landscape with towns and villages located in some of the country’s most historic sites, offering its visitors a range of activities to do in Limerick.

The launch of the virtual public consultation room follows an in-person public consultation forum that was held at Kilmurry Village Hall in UL on Thursday 4th August 2022.

Limerick Active Travel plans to submit a planning application for the Limerick City Greenway to An Bord Pleanála later this year.

Details of the project and the public consultation room are available via our online Public Consultation Portal MyPoint.

Submissions can be made via the virtual public consultation room up to and including Friday 26th August 2022.
