LIMERICK people have only a few days left to submit observations on the O’Connell Street revitalisation project, with an observation deadline of Friday September 6. The call for greater engagement follows an accessibility audit Cllr O’Donovan carried out this week on the re-development of Limerick’s premier street – O’Connell Street. The Social Democrats Councillor facilitated several disability groups on a ‘walk and talk’ of the proposals for the street. “We had many people with disabilities and organisations join us on the day. Representatives where there from Headway, the Irish Wheelchair Association, NCBI and the Disability Federation of Ireland” said O’Donovan.Many of the groups were disappointed with the current plans. “People with disabilities are concerned with the proposed shared space between vehicles and pedestrians.  They also are seeking more information on colour contrast of the kerbing, moving bollards, street clutter and access to public toilets” she said.
