An improved and enhanced web offering is to provide members of the public with access to the latest developments in relation to Active Travel projects in Limerick.

The resource will see every ongoing and completed major project under the Active Travel umbrella given its own landing page on Limerick.ie, which will be updated in real time as projects progress.

The online offering is a collaborative initiative that has involved the Active Travel team working hand-in-hand with Limerick City & County Council’s Marketing & Communications department.

Each project, via funding from the National Transport Authority, is continuing to oversee the transformation of Limerick’s cycling and pedestrian network.

Senior Engineer with the Active Travel department in Limerick City & County Council, Sean McGlynn, said:

“The Active Travel team has been continuing to develop its communications output since the unit was set up in 2021. As we move towards a modal shift in Limerick and continue to implement the infrastructure to facilitate that, it’s important all members of the public are aware of our ongoing progress, both in their local area and the city and county as a whole. This new resource allows people to keep themselves updated in terms of what has already been put in place, the progress of what is being built, and what is eventually proposed. It’s a sign of the ambition of the team as we’re consistently learning, adapting and finding new ways to share our progress. We’re looking forward to continuing our work throughout 2024 and beyond, with consistent updates being provided along the way through this offering on Limerick.ie.”

Access to information on other initiatives being carried out by the team, such as air quality monitoring and mobility counting will also be available, along with access to the team’s fortnightly newsletter.

Head of Marketing & Communications with Limerick City & County Council, Donn O’ Sullivan, added:

“Access to information in real time is a key component of the offering of Limerick.ie and we’re happy to have been able to collaborate with the Active Travel team on this exciting new resource. The site’s goal is to offer a live, digital space to inform Limerick citizens about the progress of all aspects of Limerick life – the continued development of high-class walking and cycling infrastructure is a big part of that. It ensures Limerick City & County Council’s Active Travel unit is among the first in the country to provide real time updates on before, during and after project completion.”
