Got an email back from the City Council today regarding their spending plans for next year. These are the figures they quoted, the only areas to see an increase are housing and water services.

  1. Housing €17,142,347 + €392,560
  2. Roads €13,003,249 – €369,879

What I really wanted to find out was when the re-modelling of O Connell Street and William Street would be getting underway? Bear in mind that Summer 2008 was the original date for the start of the William Street project.

As you can see, I didn’t exactly get a straight answer.

Limerick City Council hopes to commence work in 2009 on the next phases of the City Centre re-modelling scheme. This should see work commence on the inner orbital route that will facilitate the upgrading of William Street and O Connell Street.

On the one hand it seems to suggest that more than 1 project will be getting underway but then again it also implies that the O Connell St/William St projects wont be starting until the orbital route is up and running!

Im guessing its all dependant on how much money is available from the Department of Environment, Heritage & Local Government.
