I have received a lot of queries in relation to the O’Connell Ave Road Works next week

Firstly, in relation to bus stops .There are only two bus stops affected and the days they are affected the bus stops will be moved to accommodate.

In relation to timing It’s the first available slot Limerick Council have got from the contractor who only started the resurfacing programme a few weeks ago. The job will more than likely will be finished by Wednesday the 28th but council have allowed a day’s contingency. The Model school is back the 29th and the section around school will be finished and works completed by then.

Have the Council conclusively shown to you that this was the only contractor they could chose and that of all the contractors available this was the first slot any of them could do? The cynicism Cllr Elisa O'Donovan Limerick City West has nothing to do with you rather with most of us not believing a single word the Council say anymore
