A unique opportunity for our community
Limerick City is fast becoming one of the most progressive Irish cities in the field of healthier, more sustainable travel and was awarded the title of Ireland's first Smarter Travel Demonstration City in a national competition funded by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTT&S) and co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the Southern & Eastern Regional Operational Programme 2007-2013.
The means to deliver
Due to the designation, the city will receive funding of €9million from the DTT&S/ERDF over five years. Limerick City and County Council in partnership with the University of Limerick now have the means to distribute a complimentary suite of infrastructure and behaviour change measures to support and encourage people within schools, campuses, workplaces, and communities, to plan for and use healthier, more sustainable modes of travel. Limerick Smarter Travel hope that the infrastructure and behaviour change measures make a significant improvement to the community, while leading the way for similar sized cities in Ireland and across Europe.
On behalf of their community Limerick Smarter Travel acknowledge the support they have received
It is important at this time to acknowledge the valuable support of the business community, the wider education community and the residents of Limerick in making the successful funding application. It was hard work but we did it. Thank you!
