Dublin City Council to propose expanding 30km/h speed limit zones
Dublin City Council's Transport Committee will consider expanding 30km/h speed limit areas to more than 30 parts of the city.
Draft proposals show that 12 zones on the southside and 19 on the northside would be affected if the move is approved.
Affected areas on the northside would include Coolock, Artane, Killester, Clontarf, Cabra, North Wall, and parts of Glasnevin, Finglas and Drumcondra.
Meanwhile on the southside, an area between Inchicore and Kilmainham, part of Donnybrook, and Harold's Cross, Rathmines, Portobello, Ranelagh and Ballsbridge would be affected.
The proposals are part of the third phase of the 30 km/h speed limit roll out, which has included a review of arterial routes around the city and a look at additional areas for inclusion.
The review also includes a proposed pilot scheme, where periodic 30 km/h speed limits would be introduced outside some schools, although these would not apply on a full-time basis.
The schools are located on Howth Road, Griffith Avenue, Terenure Road East, Clareville Road in Terenure and Seamus Ennis Road in Finglas.
The new limits will be discussed at a meeting of the Transportation Committee this Thursday, and put forward at a full meeting of the council for public consultation if they are approved.
