Coun­cil­lor calls for speed limit in­crease on the N11

Bray People - - DOWN THE YEARS -

April 2004

WICK­LOW County Coun­cil­lor Derek Mitchell has called for the new N11 speed limit to be in­creased from 40mph to 60mph in Jan­uary.

He pointed out that the road is a fine wide road with solid safety bar­ri­ers and it is very dif­fi­cult to keep one’s speed down to 40mph on it.

‘ This speed limit needs to be in­creased to 60mph which is the de­sign speed for most of the road,’ he said.

The road, which would have been 60mph be­fore road­works be­gan, was changed to 40mph for safety rea­sons.

De­spite his con­cerns about the speed limit, Cllr. Mitchell is de­lighted to see the N11 open. Traf­fic over Windgates, he main­tains, has de­creased by about 30 per cent, queu­ing at Black­lion has re­duced and the rat run­ning on some of the back roads of Del­gany has ceased.
