Speeds in hous­ing es­tates to be ex­am­ined by coun­cil

Bray People - - NEWS -

CLLR Jen­nifer Whit­more is con­duct­ing a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion on speed lim­its in hous­ing es­tates and is call­ing on peo­ple to get in touch if they have prob­lems with speed­ing in their ar­eas.

The Depart­ment of Trans­port and Wick­low County Coun­cil are cur­rently in­ves­ti­gat­ing speed lim­its in res­i­den­tial ar­eas with the goal of im­prov­ing road safety for cy­clists, pedes­tri­ans and chil­dren in par­tic­u­lar.

‘ To as­sist in this, Wick­low County Coun­cil is com­pil­ing a list of 30 es­tates in the county where there may be speed­ing prob­lems,’ said Cllr Whit­more.

‘ Th­ese 30 es­tates will be used as a pi­lot scheme to see what im­pact re­duc­ing the speed limit to 30km/hr and im­prov­ing sig­nage has on the speed­ing prob­lems.’

As part of the ini­tia­tive, Grey­stones Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict has been asked to nom­i­nate five es­tates and Cllr Whit­more is ask­ing peo­ple to get in touch. She has also asked for clar­ity on whether es­tates that the coun­cil has not yet taken charge of such as Holy­well in Kil­coole and Charlesland in Grey­stones can be in­cluded.
