Local Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has welcomed the announcement today of 20 mph speed limits around 100 schools in the north.

Speaking to Newry Times, the Newry and Armagh MLA stated, “I welcome the announcement today of 20 mph speed limits being rolled out across 100 schools in the north to improve safety for some of our most vulnerable road users.



“This is something I have been continuously campaigning for.

“It is a common-sense approach to improve road safety for our children and young people.



“This has particular importance for schools in rural areas where some roads have the national speed limit which is totally unacceptable.

“I have written to the minister to ask her to provide clarity as to what specific schools will avail of this vital scheme, which so many people have waited on for some time now,” Kimmins added.
