The speed limits in these parts of Dublin will be reduced from this week onwards
The speed limit will change from midnight on Tuesday.

New speed limits will come into effect in a number of areas across the city from midnight on Tuesday onwards.

A 30 km/h speed limit will be enforced in certain urban areas and residential estates throughout Dublin from midnight on Tuesday, May 30, as part of the expansion of 30 km/h speed limits throughout the city.

The new speed limit will come into effect in parts of Sandymount, Crumlin, Drimnagh, Raheny, Artane, Donaghmede, Drumcondra and Phibsborough; a detailed map of the zones where the expansion of the 30km/hr limit will come into effect can be viewed here.

The introduction of the 30 km/h speed limit in those areas comes after it was initially introduced in a number of areas in Dublin city centre in March.

Dublin City Council says that the expansion of the 30km/hr speed limit zones will generally not affect the arterial roads in and out of the city but rather the residential areas of the city.

New signage will be revealed in housing estates and locations where the 30km/hr speed limit is being applied and a Slow Zone will be created.

Bye-laws for the 30km/hr expansion were adopted by Dublin City councillors in December 2016 following a period of public consultation; you can see all the areas of Dublin where it is in effect on the Dublin City Council website here.
