The N/M20 Cork to Limerick Road Improvement Scheme is a key element in Project Ireland 2040, the Government’s long-term overarching strategy to make Ireland a better country for all of its people. The Strategy comprises the National Planning Framework (NPF) to 2040 and the National Development Plan (NDP) 2018-2027.
The NDP identifies improved accessibility between urban centres of population and their regions as a major enabler for balanced regional development. The NDP sets out that the N/M20 Cork to Limerick scheme would provide better connectivity between Ireland’s second and third largest cities by improving the quality of the transport network which will address safety issues and provide for safer and more efficient journey times.
Limerick City and County Council, in partnership with Cork County Council, Cork City Council, Tipperary County Council, Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) and Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTaS) are developing the N/M20 Cork to Limerick Improvement Scheme. Limerick City and County Council, as lead authority, have appointed Barry Transportation and its project partners Sweco and WSP (BSW) as Technical Advisors to progress the planning and design for the scheme.
The N/M20 Project Office has been established in Limerick City and County Council’s offices at Lissanalta House, Dooradoyle, Limerick.
