12. Movement and Mobility

  • A reduction of the speed limit to 30 km/h should be introduced in our town centres and outside all of our schools. This makes it safer for pedestrians and reduces the chances of accidents.
  • Protected cycle lanes should be constructed in our rural towns especially on roads close to schools.
  • Suitable bicycle parking infrastructure needs to be constructed in our towns.
  • Many of our towns, like Castlecomer, have car park spaces that are frequently unused. Removing even a small number of spaces would allow more space for outdoor seating or space for bicycle parking. 
  • A rural bus scheme connecting our rural towns to each other and Kilkenny City would be a big step towards reducing dependency on cars. 
  • "Walking Buses" are a great idea and encourage active travel from a young age. The majority of our rural towns are small enough that children living in them should be able to walk or cycle to school.
