23/03/2015 - Council to review speed limits in housing estates


Donegal County Council is asking the public to get involved in reviewing speed limits in housing estates throughout Donegal.


It follows a decision by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport who recently published a circular in relation to the control of vehicle speeds at these locations. Part of this relates to councils’ considering the application of 30 km/h speed limits to appropriate estates within their administrative areas.


Donegal County Council is carrying out a review of speed limits within housing estates and the council’s Roads Section, as part of a wider review of speed limits on all public roads within the county, is currently compiling a schedule of roads where concern has been raised regarding the existing speed limits.


The council wishes to invite submissions in relation to any housing estates where members of the public have concerns regarding the current speed of vehicles.


It is intended that the locations identified will be assessed in accordance with new revised Guidelines for the Application of Special Speed Limits, which are expected to be issued by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport this month.


The review of speed limits within the county is an ongoing process but all submissions to be included within the current review should be submitted by Thursday, April 2.


Submissions can be sent to: Speed Limit Survey, Road Design Office, Donegal County Council, County House, Lifford, Co. Donegal or by e-mail to:  [email protected]
