The Limerick Shannon Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy will set out the major transport infrastructure projects in this region for the next 20 years. It is currently underway with consultation taking place with key stakeholders, such as transport providers and campaign groups. The public consultation phase is expected to begin in the new year with the Strategy due to be published in the summer. We will be concentrating our efforts on ensuring that the strategy priorities sustainable transport infrastructure, i.e. rail, tram, bus, bike and walking. Green Party policy is to push for a 2:1 split in favour of sustainable transport spending over road spending.
