Project Description

This project forms part of Limerick City and County Council's City Centre Remodelling of Streets & Public Spaces programme which aims to make the city centre a pedestrian- friendly environment and a more attractive place in which to shop, to visit, do business, and pass the time of day.

The €1.5m John's Square Remodelling project involved the upgrading of the historic square which is Limerick city's oldest public space.

Works included traffic calming and shared surface treatment; rationalized and redefined parking; reconstruction of roads and footways with high quality surface finishes; provision of open pedestrian public space, seating and performance areas; distinctive new public lighting; new tree planting to complement the two large existing trees that have been retained; renewal of utilities and undergrounding of overhead services.

Extensive temporary traffic management and works phasing was required to mitigate disruption to businesses and to maintain access to all buildings during the works; a new permanent traffic circulation scheme was implemented as part of the project.
