You heard it from the mayor – potholes are going

first_imgJUST hours after he returned from a visit to Limerick’s twin city of Spokane in the United States last week, Mayor Kevin Kiely lost no time in contacting the Limerick Post to give his personal guarantee that within a matter of weeks, work will commence on ridding Stenson Park, Farranshone of the hundreds of potholes that are making life something of a dangerous hit and miss for motorists and pedestrians alike.Last week this newspaper gave an update on the pothole situation which has been growing progressively worse over the past months. A photograph of two residents playing pitch and putt – sinking balls into the huge holes on the housing estate, brought forth an immediate response from local councillor, Maurice Quinlivan who had some reservations that work to rid Stenson Park of the offending potholes would get underway as speedily as the local people would like.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The city council has to wait until June 17, which is the expiry date for any objections to be submitted against the taking in charge by the council of the estate but even then there’s a question of funding, although I believe that some has been put aside to get the problem tackled.”Convinced that the first phase of work will get underway in four weeks time, Mayor Kiely said:“The director of services, Pat Dromey told me that the resurfacing programme will cost in the region of €30million and he will be sending it out for contract very shortly.The mayor also confirmed that the specially commissioned monument in commemoration of the generations of men who worked as Dockers in Limerick’s Dry Docks will be officially unveiled on Friday, June 18.“We are inviting dockers or a representative to attend the ceremony. Also, on June 26, I will officially declare open the upgraded Clareville Water Works.
