THE CONSTRUCTION of more than a dozen homes in Limerick city is to begin very shortly, the council has announced this Tuesday.
The development of 11 two-storey houses and a three-storey apartment block, incorporating two apartments, are being built on a council-owned site on Waller’s Well, Roxboro Road.
Contracts worth €3m have been signed with Martin’s Construction Limited from Ennis who won the competitive tender process.
The construction phase is due to take approximately 18 months to complete.
The first phase of Waller’s Well comprised of 10 homes and have been occupied since 2015.
In addition to the new homes there will be a new site access road from the Roxboro Road, additional car parking spaces and an improvement to existing footpaths.
New street lighting will be installed while soft landscaping including planting of shrubs and trees in the area is part of the development.
Waller’s Well is one of a series of Part 8 housing applications which were granted by Limerick City and County Council and have now been approved for funding by central government.
The development is part of the council’s plans for new homes in Limerick as part of its commitment to the government’s overall Rebuilding Ireland project.
