Could Northern Ireland go 20 mph?

Conall McDevitt MLA has tabled a Private Member's Bill in the Northern Ireland Legislative Assembly which seeks to make 20mph the default speed limit on most residential roads in the 6 counties.
20mph could be the default residential speed limit in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is uniquely placed to do this: the entire road network is under the control of a single highway authority - the Roads Service - which is responsible for every road, bridge and street light across the area. It is directly controlled by the Department for Regional Development, which means that decisions can be made at the national level over local streets.

CTC and Tricycle have teamed up to deliver high quality cycle training in Northern Ireland.

CTC is proud to work in partnership with Tricycle, the leading cycle training organisation in Ireland.

CTC have worked with them to develop their expertise in the UK National Standards in cycle training.

Tricycle's directors, Karen Mawhinney and Alan Pentland, are now CTC instructor trainers accredited to deliver CTC's high quality National Standard Instructor course.

Tricycle's first independent course was actually in Dublin and was extremely well received. They are now set to deliver more courses, with the next one beginning on 31 May in Belfast.

Helmet law in Northern Ireland falls

4 May 2011
Although MLA Pat Ramsey's Private Members' Bill to make wearing helmets compulsory for all cyclists in Northern Ireland passed its second stage in the Northern Ireland Assembly, the Bill has subsequently been dropped following evidence to the Environment Committee from CTC and Sustrans.
View from Stormont

CTC and Sustrans opposed the Bill in evidence given to the Environment Committee on the 10th March 2011. Following Northern Ireland Assembly elections in May 2011, the Bill now appears unlikely to make further progress.
