Limerick City Cycle Network Strategy

City Cycle Network Strategy

 

The strategy sets out the key issues involved in developing a cycle lane network for Limerick City. A proposed network of cycle routes is identified. These routes link centres of education and work places with residential areas utilising Limerick's relatively flat topography and attractive water frontages.
