Attempts to make 30km/h the default speed limit across Dublin city have been scuppered.

It's after councillors last night voted through an amendment for a 40km limit to be considered on commuter routes including Collins Avenue and the Malahide Road.

It means the extension of reduced speeds, which has been introduced in most residential areas, has been pushed out.

A new round of public consultation will take place on any changes.

Fine Gael's Naoise Ó Muirí says 30 km/h isn't realistic on certain key routes;

"I cycle a lot now but I took the car and I tried Collins Avenue, I tried Griffith Avenue and I tried the Malahide Road and it is nigh impossible to travel those roads at 30km/h as it stands."

He wants council area committees to consider speeds for arterial routes in their locality.

Green Party councillor Janet Horner was among those tweeting their disappointment with the decision following last night's monthly council meeting.
