Speed Limits outside Craughwell

    Does any one have any idea why they've moved the speed limits so far out of town on the Loughrea side. It looks like a permanent thing and not just for roadworks. When you're driving into Craughwell you're expected to slow to 50km/hr at least a mile before the town. Before you didn't have to slow till the Statoil. I can't figure it out and it's really annoying.

    Aren't there new housing estates out that side now?

    They don't go anywhere near where the 50km zone is.

    They're a limit, not a target.

    You need to sort out some cruising tunes and use the time to relax.

    Point taken but when you're in the country side - 50 km/hr is way too slow. If anyone has driven there they'll know what I'm talking about.

    I know exactly what you're talking about. But as long as that 50km/hr limit has been in place I have NEVER seen one driver doing 50 in that zone, and I'm on that stretch twice a day.

    Drove through here at the weekend and they seem to have moved the end of the 50kmh limit back in towards town - now at the end of the built up area
