30km/H Speed Limits On The Way For Dublin City In 2020


All residential areas in Dublin City are to have the speed limits cut to 30km/h. That’s under new laws that will be introduced next year.

The Irish Times reports that members of the council’s traffic committee will be requested to approve the lower limits a meeting expected to be held this week.

This comes after a public consultation that received over 900 submissions, 700 of which showed their support for slower speeds.

From next March, the changes will be introduced in three phases, beginning with north-western suburbs such as Glasnevin, Finglas, Ballymun and Santry.

Labour’s Marie Sherlock commented that one thousand submissions regarding the plans supported the move.

Ms Sherlock stated: “This is the final stage of a very long-running campaign to try and lower speed limits to 30km/h across all residential areas in Dublin.

“The City council first started lowering speed limits to 30km/h back in 2007.”
