Road Works Speed Limit Order: N21 Works at Barnagh Tunnel
Road Traffic Act 2004 (Section 10). Notice is hereby given that Limerick City and County Council has made an order applying a Temporary Speed Limit of 60kph on the N21 near Barnagh in the interests of road safety and prudent traffic management.
The Temporary Speed Limit is required to facilitate the construction of a culvert underpass on the N21 which will connect the Great Southern Greenway (GSG) on the North side of the N21 to the GSG on the southside of the N21.
The underpass will safely segregate pedestrians, cyclists and other users of the Greenway from the significant traffic volumes using the N21 route.
The speed limit reduction will apply from 27th March 2019 for the duration of the works, expected to be 12 weeks, or for a period not exceeding 1 year whichever is the earlier.
The Chief Executive shall have regard to any representations that are made to him in relation to the Order.
