Limerick TD and Minister for the Office of Public Works, Patrick O’Donovan has welcomed a major investment by Minister Hildegarde Naughton TD for road works including pedestrian crossings, footpaths, lighting, drainage and safety measures across the County.
“Communities across Limerick will benefit from substantial investment for their areas. Various different projects are being included for towns and villages like the installation of pedestrian crossings or the removal of difficult flooding problems off of sections of road.”
“As TD for the County I would have identified most of these needs to Limerick City and County Council and have met local area engineers to get these matters pushed forwards.”
“This investment by Government is also important because it is an important injection of €2million which will allow for local construction works in several of our communities.”
Minister O’Donovan also pointed out that the works in question will make the areas where the roads and footpaths are being repaired or installed safer for pedestrians and other road users.
“The recent COVID restrictions have seen a major rise in the numbers of people walking so this money will help those areas to be safer and allow more people to use our footpaths and roads more safely.”
Patrick O’Donovan said that with he would continue to work with Fine Gael Councillors across the County to identify work like this that the Council and the Government can complete, and that he would engage positively with the Council staff to advance projects for communities across Limerick.
