Commute times to work are much lower in Limerick than in the rest of Ireland with two-thirds of the working population at work in less than thirty minutes.
Limerick’s excellent road and rail network reflects the region’s accessibility. Six national roads converge on Limerick city and its environs. Following the opening of the Limerick Tunnel project, all national roads that converge on Limerick city are now connected in a southern bypass of the city. This has allowed for the introduction of more city centre pedestrian friendly measures.
