Speed limits in a number of housing estates across Cork North West have been reduced to 30km/h in the interest of safety, Cork North West Fine Gael General Election candidate Councillor John Paul O’Shea has said.
The County of Cork Road Traffic Special Speed Limits (Housing Estates) Bye-Laws 2019 was adopted by Council representatives on today, Monday 25th November and the bye-law will come into effect on December 9th.
Roads included in the new bye-law are as follows:
- L7491-0-0 Baile Mhic Estate Road, Ballyvourney
- L5267-0 Egmont Estate Road, Kanturk
- L5263-0 Highfield Cresent Estate Road, Kanturk
- L9322-0 Lios na Fe Estate Road, Macroom

- L9316-0 Sally Gardens Estate Road, Macroom
- L9326-0 The Glenties Estate Road, Macroom
- L9325-0 The Hermitage Estate Road, Macroom
Welcoming the Bye-Laws, Cllr. O’Shea said: “Very often I have constituents speaking to me about speeding within housing estates across the constituency and so it is very welcome that the Council has adopted a reduced speed limit where necessary. The idea of this change is to make estate safer for residents and pedestrians, especially young children and vulnerable road users.”
