Cork-Limerick Transport Link Solution To Be Unveiled In Next Fortnight
The preferred transport solution to link Cork and Limerick cities is due to be unveiled in the next fortnight
The level of detail will not be unveiled for public consultation until March 30th but it’s understood the preferred solution does include a mix of transport modes.
The Irish Examiner reports that the unveiling of the preferred transport route follows the consideration of public feedback on a consultation process which took place in late 2020 and early 2021 on a number of road-based and rail-based options which it was deemed could feasibly be delivered within a 500m corridor between the two cities.
The solution, is also expected to include bypasses of several towns along with the narrowing of the route corridor down to a more defined route, which will be subject to further detailed design over the coming months as the scheme advances towards business appraisal, and later government sign-off.
The M20 project has been on hold for almost 10 years and could cost at least €1 billion.
