M20 announcement welcomed

Mayor Stephen Keary has welcomed the announcement that the M20 Limerick to Cork Motorway Scheme will form part of the government’s upcoming ten year capital plan, saying, “The motorway is a vital piece of infrastructure between the second and third cities of the country.
“With the M18 to Galway and now the M20 to Cork, Limerick is truly at the heart of this counter pole to the development of the capital.
“According to the recent Limerick and Cork Chambers of Commerce report, the M20 Motorway will increase the potential labour force within a 45-minute commute of Limerick by 23%. This figure alone will make Limerick even more attractive for investment.”
