Exciting m50million city centre revamp to change streetscape (Limerick Post)
The orbital route around the city will create a mainly one-way, two lane clockwise traffic system that will be divided into three sections, northern, central and southern,â€ outlined Mr Dromey.
The northern section will travel along Arthurâ€™s Quay, Charlotteâ€™s Quay, Clare Street, Lelia Street, New Road and Cathedral Place.
The central section will travel along Sarsfield Street, William Street, Upper William Street, Sexton Street, Roches Street, Shannon Street and Henry Street.
The southern section will travel along Parnell Street, Mallow Street and Henry Street.
Update: The Limerick Leader gives exact details for the orbital route
Nick de Jong of Nicholas de Jong Associates, responsible for the design of the transformed city centre, told City Councillors that it is planned to convert Charlotte Quay into a one-way system, while Clare Street on to the Dublin Road will remain a two-way.
Interesting to see what traffic patterns will emerge when the Charlotteâ€™s Quay turns into a one-way street and since the Orbital route is to rotate in a clockwise direction, would in turn mean that the Charlotteâ€™s Quay would only be used for traffic leaving the city centre in the direction of the Dublin road.
With the planned Opera Centre in mind, access to the city centre via the Dublin road would have to turn right at the Abbey bridge roundabout in the direction of King Johnâ€™s Castle and left again at the next junction onto Athlunkard street. The groove island link road over the canal to the Dublin road could also be used as an alternative route.
