I was delighted to be able to announce before Christmas an enhancement of bus services in Limerick and surrounding areas. Enhanced investment in public transport in our regional cities is a priority for me and a priority I know the Deputy shares also.
I look forward to the finalisation this year of the Limerick-Shannon Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy which will provide the strategic backdrop to investment over the next 20 years and it is an investment I hope to support through the revised National Development Plan.
As part of this overall programme of investment in Limerick I note that the National Transport Authority has committed to the roll-out of Transport for Ireland branded signage and timetbale information for bus stops in Limerick City. However, that roll-out is temporarily paused due to restrictions introduced in response to the current public health advice. I very much look forward to seeing that work completed once the current restrictions are eased.
