The Council has prepared new byelaws to introduce a 30KPH speed limit on over 700 residential streets across Dun Laoghaire Rathdown. This measure, which affects approximately one quarter of the roads in the county, will reduce vehicle speeds in housing estates so as to improve road safety for all road users.
Phase 1 of the scheme will consist of new speed limit signage being introduced on the selected roads.
Phase 2 will commence in approximately six months and will be piloted in six estates, including Balally and Marley Grange. The approach will involve the implementation of speed alerts signs and engagement with community groups. Where it is found that speeds cannot be controlled through speed limit signs and community engagement, the Council will then investigate appropriate traffic calming measures that could be provided to reduce speeds.
