The speed limit of Letterkenny’s Golf Course road is to be reviewed after residents raised fears over accidents involving pedestrians.
The current speed limit on the Golf Course Road is 80kph, but calls have been made for it to be reduced to 60kph.
The road, located in a residential area, has seen incidents in the past where pedestrians were reportedly struck by passing cars.
Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh raised the matter at the January sitting of the Letterkenny Milford Municipal District.
He said: “This issue has been raised by residents in the area, who are very concerned about speeding on the road. They point out that the road is widely used by walkers, runners, cyclists and mothers pushing buggies.
“I have been told of two incidents in the last year where pedestrians were hit by a vehicle in one instance it was a lady with a buggy.”
Cllr Kavanagh said there is an added danger as the road is used by cyclists on the European cycleway route who would be unfamiliar with the road and unaware of the speeding issues.
In response to the motion, Donegal County Council said the speed limit of the road will be reviewed in 2022 as part of a bylaw review which takes place every five years.
