Road Works Speed Limit
Road Traffic Act 2004
Under Section 10 of the above Act, it is the intention of Kilkenny County Council to impose a Road Works Speed Limit from 8th August to 27th October 2017 on the N78 between Damerstown West and Castlecomer.
The road works speed limit is required to facilitate the construction of pavement improvement at Ballycomey to Castlecomer. The maximum extents of the road works speed limits of 50kph and 60kph are as follows:
60kph transition speed limit on the N78, 64m south of the junction of the N78 and the L1823 to a point 56m north of the junction of the N78 and the L1823 on the N78
50kph speed limit on the N78, from a point 56m north of the junction of the N78 and the L1823 on the N78 to the 50 kph speed limit in Castlecomer Village
The above are the maximum extents of speed limits required. The works are to be carried out on a phased basis within this zone. The speed limits will only be applied to each phase of works within this zone to minimise delays.
