Kilgallen & Partners’ design for a new roundabout on the N24 at one of the most dangerous and busiest junctions in County Limerick has been backed by Councillors in the Cappamore-Kilmallock municipal district.
They backed the latest stage in the process to construct a €2 million roundabout at Beary’s Cross on the N24. It connects the R513 Limerick to Mitchelstown Road with the Limerick to Tipperary Road.
Tim Fitzgerald, of the Mid-West National Road Design Office and Kilgallen & Partners Consulting Engineers gave local councillors a presentation on submissions received after it went on public consultation. It will be a four leg roundabout, north and south on the N24 with links to Mitchelstown and Murroe-Boher GAA club’s pitch.
Cllr Brigid Teefy said the progress is “very, very welcome”. “We have been waiting so long for this. It is so, so busy,” said Cllr Teefy.
