Traffic Calming Policy

Meath County Council Ordinary Meeting
7th November 2016, Council Chamber

9 Notice of Motion
9.4 Submitted by Councillor Trevor Golden

For Meath County Council to introduce a Traffic Calming Policy referencing the National Traffic Management Guidelines and to include the following local factors

  • Requests from the majority of residents similar to the plebiscite used in planning for taking in charge requests. 
  • Length of road
  • Recorded speed
  • Accident history
  • Traffic volumes
  • Vulnerable road users

On adoption of the policy, each Municipal District would use this criteria to allocate funding and prioritise works.
