30km/h speed limit zones to be expanded in Dublin City

— 30km/h will not be extended to main roads except outside schools.

A phased expansion of 30km/h speed limits is to be expanded in the Dublin City Council area again this year.

The latest roll out of 30km/h zones will exclude main roads, except for proposed periodic speed limits outside schools.

According the the council, the areas chosen for this phase are based on submissions from elected representatives and members of the public over the past couple of years; consideration of roads and streets that include an engineered layout and design and the potential for introducing a self enforcing speed limit; assessment against the accident data base and close consultation with the Gardai, and information from speed surveys of the existing speeds on candidate roads and streets.

Details can be found at dublincity.ie/speedreview and submissions can be made via consultation.dublincity.ie by 5pm on Tuesday 24th of July.

The new proposed periodic speed limits outside schools are:

  • Howth Road from a point at Public Lamp Standard 86 and heading West for 160m and East for 60m, between the hours of 08.15 to 9.30 and 12.45 to 16.15.
  • Griffith Avenue from a point at Public Lamp Standard 11 and heading West for 373m and East for 67m, between the hours of 08.15 to 9.30 and 12.45 to 16.15.
  • Seamus Ennis Road from a point at Public Lamp Standard 70 and heading West for 78m and East for 92m, between the hours of 08.15 to 9.30 and 12.45 to 16.15.
  • Terenure Road East from a point at Public Lamp Standard 16 and heading East for 200m and West for 80m, between the hours of 08.15 to 9.30 and 12.45 to 16.15.
  • Clareville Road East from a point at Public Lamp Standard 11 and heading East for 79m and West for 100m, between the hours of 08.15 to 9.30 and 12.45 to 16.15.

IrishCycle.com is reader-funded journalism. That means it's funded by readers like you.

Subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October).

If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!

Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.

IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
