Report on the controversial footbridge

On May 24, Senior Architect Rosie Webb submitted a 12-page report to Limerick City and County Council, in which she detailed the findings of the public consultation organised as part of the City Riverway Engage week over the potential use of Limerick’s riverways.

The report recommends “the option for a long span bridge from Arthur’s Quay/Sarsfield House to Merchant’s Quay be re-examined due to its potential to have an adverse effect on the navigation of the River by boats”.

She said that the next step should be an enabling design review, which will deliver a framework for the development of the “appropriate infrastructure for the riverside”. It is hoped that a final report with recommendations will be made by this July.
