30kph speed limit

To improve road safety Dublin City Council is considering lowering the standard city speed limit from 50kph to 30kph and is asking the public for feedback on the proposal. 

Bye-laws to legislate for this change, the Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws, 2020 are available to view HERE or a hardcopy is available at all opened Dublin City Council Libraries, Civic Offices and Local Area Offices. 

The deadline for feedback is Thursday 13, August 2020. 

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

The aim of this consultation is to get public feedback on the 30kph speed limit for the purpose of gauging public levels of support and identifying if there are any particular barriers to acceptance and compliance.

As part of the public consultation process, DDC have created a two-minute survey which explores public perception of driver behaviour and speed limit compliance.
