Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws, 2020 (COVID19). Public Consultation.

Councillor Heney wishes to advise constituents that Dublin City Council is proposing to extend the area of the 30km/h speed limit. Bye-laws to legislate for this change, the Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws, 2020 (COVID19), were presented to the Councillors in June this year. These bye-laws are available to view at http://www.dublincity.ie/speedreview or a hardcopy is currently available for inspection at all opened Dublin City Council Libraries, Civic Offices and Local Area Offices.

A six week period of public consultation began on the 2nd of July and finishes on Thursday 13th of August. The aim of this consultation is to get public feedback on the 30km/h speed limit for the purpose of gauging public levels of support and identifying if there are any particular barriers to acceptance and compliance. Submissions may 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, or via email to speedreview@dublincity.ie.

As part of the public consultation process, a survey has been created which explores public perception of driver behaviour and speed limit compliance. We would appreciate if you could take the time to complete this survey (it takes about two minutes) as the more feedback, the better.
