children at play


Monday, May 09, 2016


QUESTION: Councillor F. Timmons

“To ask the Chief Executive for an update on drive carefully children at play and new speed limit signs, has a list of estates been drawn up?” 


“Children at Play” signs were provided at 51 locations in 2015 as notified to the area committees in February 2015. It is not proposed to provide further children at play signs in 2016.

There is a countywide speed limit review underway at present following which it is hoped to implement a new 30 kph speed limit in housing estates. Bye-Laws will have to be adopted to implement any new special speed limit. As part of the programme “Slow Zone” signs will be provided at appropriate locations.

Presentations on the speed limit review were made to the area committees in February and the Land Use Planning and Transportation SPC in March. This is part of a pre bye-law draft consultation which also involves consultation with An Garda Siochana, TII and adjoining local authorities. In accordance with the Road Traffic Act 2004 the process will then continue with public consultation, assessment and consideration of resulting draft bye-laws by the area committees leading eventually to adoption of the necessary Special Bye-Laws by the County Council Members. A specified day will then be selected for the bye-laws to come into force.

(A flowchart of the speed limit review procedure was presented to the Land Use Planning and Transportation SPC  – HI (4) – on 31st March)
