Non-Statutory Public Consultation Process to extend 30/km per hour Speed Limit in Dublin city.
Councillor Heney wishes to advise constituents that Dublin City Council has opened a Non-Statutory Public Consultation Process to extend 30/km per hour Speed Limit in Dublin city.
• Road accident statistics show lower speeds result in less fatalities, less injuries and severity of injuries.
• A 10 km/h difference in speed could be the difference between life and death for a vulnerable road user like a pedestrian.
Dublin City Council is inviting members of the public to provide feedback on a proposal to have a default 30km per hour speed limit across most areas of the city.
The Non-Statutory public consultation opens today Friday, 9th April until Friday, 23rd April 2021. Members of the public are asked to make their submissions on Dublin City Council’s Consultation Hub which can be found here: https://www.dublincity.ie/loving30 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions can also be made in writing marked “Speed Limit Review” to the Senior Engineer, Transport Operations, Environment & Transportation Department, Dublin City Council, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, D08 RF3F.
All submissions will be reviewed and taken into consideration ahead of a final decision being made to extend the 30km/h speed limit.
A report will then be prepared and presented the Traffic & Transport Strategic Policy Committee on the 25th May 2021. The report will also be presented at the City Council Monthly Meeting on the 14th of June 2021 for approval to carry out a 6 – week Statutory Public Consultation process to amend the existing Speed Bye-Laws.
