Led by Cork County Council, PLEEP South West will upgrade 77,162 public lights to LED across the region’s local authorities, Cork County Council, Clare County Council, Kerry County Council, Limerick City & County Council, and Waterford City & County Council, as well as Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII). Once complete, the South West regional project is predicted to reduce CO2 emissions by 5,000 tonnes each year, while saving the five local authorities €5m in energy and maintenance costs annually and helping to meet energy-efficient targets.

RDJ Procurement and Construction Partner Finola McCarthy and Construction Consultant Denise Kennedy advised on the project.
