Did you know that Galway County Council is planning to implement a review of speed limits across the county?  The review has direct impacts in the Milltown Area and the Council want to hear your views by the 7th September.

Earlier this month, GCC published draft Road Traffic (Special Speed Limits) Bye-laws 2018.  You can view the proposed bye-laws, including the maps in the Municipal District office, in the Library in Tuam or at this link.

You can make submissions in writing, to the Director of Services, Infrastructure and Operations Unit, Galway County Council, Áras an Chontae, Prospect Hill, Galway, or by email to roads@galwaycoco.ie.

There are a lot of documents and maps to read, but the main changes that will impact you on a daily basis are on the N17.  There is a proposed reduction in speed limit to 80kph north of the village past the Carrownageeha junction.   The second is a proposed 20-minute intermittent 60kph speed limit at drop-off and pick-up times, close to the school.  The proposed times and duration are not suitable (at drop-off GCC have proposed 60kph between 8:30 and 8:50, when school doesn’t start until 9:00!).

We encourage all residents to make your voices heard… now is the time to tell the Council that you would like a safe route to our school, whether walking, cycling, or in the car.
