Background

Limerick City and County Council is working in partnership with Kerry County Council, Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) and the Department of Transport to develop a scheme to relieve congestion on the N21 Limerick to Tralee Road through Abbeyfeale. This project is called the N21 Abbeyfeale Road Scheme. This is an important project to enhance regional connectivity and to improve road safety. 

Limerick City and County Council has appointed Jacobs Consulting Engineers to advance the project through the planning and design process. Subject to funding, the design process will be developed in stages, with opportunities for the public to participate in the decision-making at key stages.



What’s Happening Now

The project is currently at the Option Selection stage. The Option Selection process has considered and assessed a range of feasible options within the study area under the three headings - engineering, environment and economy. A number of Route Corridor Options have been shortlisted to take forward for further development. The shortlisted options were presented to the public during a public consultation held from the 1st February to 5th March 2021 (all information from the Public Consultation is available in the Downloads section of the website).

Feedback and submissions received through this Public Consultation will be considered by the project team during Stage 2 of the Options Selection Process. This process will identify a Preferred Option through a detailed assessment of the shortlisted route corridor options under the following criteria:
  • Economy
  • Safety
  • Environment
  • Accessibility & Social Inclusion
  • Integration
  • Physical Activity.
