Cork County Council starts consultation on 16 month speed limit review process

NEWS-IN-BRIEF: Cork County Council said last week that it is starting its speed limit review process which it hopes to finish by October 31, 2022.

This is reader-funded journalism, but it needs more support -- our target is 20 more subscribers by the end of August... can you help? Subscribe today.

It is pre-draft consultation — which means there are no documents or maps to view — which seeks suggestions from members of the public up to Monday July 19, 2021.

Cork County Council said: “If you wish to make a submission, you should outline in detail the exact location and extent of roadway to which you refer along with a brief justification for your recommendation. Submissions should be forwarded in writing only to Staff Officer, Roads Management & Development Unit, Cork County Council, Annabella, Mallow, Co. Cork or by email to speedlimitreview@corkcoco.ie by Monday 19th July, 2021.”

Hello Reader... 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
