€19,856 spent on speed display signs
By Aideen O'Flaherty
OVER €19,000 was spent by South Dublin County Council on speed display road signs last year, and there are now 27 speed display road signs in the county.
The council stated this in response to a question that was submitted by Clondalkin Independent councillor Francis Timmons at the monthly meeting of South Dublin County Council.

Cllr Timmons asked for a report into the cost of the speed display signs and asked how speed would be monitored in the areas that have these signs.
In response, the local authority stated: “The expenditure on speed display signs in 2018 was €19,856 exclusive of VAT. There are now 27 such signs throughout the county.
“The majority of these signs can be remotely accessed for the purpose of gathering and analysing speed data.”
