Public consultation has begun on the second phase of the M20 Cork to Limerick Improvement project.
The existing N20 road will be developed via Croom, Charleville, Buttevant, Mallow and Blarney.
A selection of road and rail-based options have been shortlisted and an active travel strategy has been developed following the completion of the first phase of the appraisal process and Limerick County Council is seeking feedback from the public
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the holding of mass public consultation is not permitted, however an online consultation platform has been created to allow the public and other stakeholders to interact with and view the consultation information and maps, and provide feedback on the options strategies using an online feedback form.
Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council, Dr Pat Daly said: “The N/M20 project will complete the Atlantic Corridor between Limerick, Cork and Galway.
This enables the cities of Limerick and Cork to be regional economic drivers and to create an inter-regional network along the Atlantic Corridor.”
“The project is seen as a key enabler of balanced regional development in the National Planning Framework and is a key element in the Government’s Project Ireland 2040 Strategy, so I would encourage members of the public and other stakeholders to get involved in the consultation process.”
The feedback will be taken into consideration during the planning process a further public consultation is expected to take place in Summer 2021.
Submissions can be made using the online feedback form, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post addressed to N/M20 Project Office, Lissanalta House, Dooradyle, Limerick V94H5RR
