Speed Limits in Your Area 2020

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council is constantly working for and with the people of Dublin to improve road safety on all streets of the City. While road safety is important to all road users, cyclists and pedestrians are amongst those who are the most at risk of sustaining injuries in accidents. The extent and severity of injuries are linked to vehicle speed. The higher the speed, the more serious injuries are sustained. Therefore, traffic speed reduction for all vehicles plays a crucial role in improving road safety on the City Streets.

In response to this, Dublin City Council took a proactive approach and implemented 30km/h speed limits for all residential areas of Dublin. Most recent Dublin City Council’s Bye-Laws were adopted at the January 2020 Council meeting. The intention of Dublin City Council’s Transportation Department  is to roll out 30km/h speed limits in all residential areas across the local authority by the end of 2020.

Please see below Figure 1 showing the existing 30 km/h implemented in Dublin City todate and the adopted by Council proposed expansion of 30 km/h as part of the Phase 4 Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws 2020.
