Travelling to or from Kerry to Mondello Park or up the country to a rally – you will need to read this 

While the resumption of motorsport in Ireland remains uncertain for the foreseeable future – when it does happen Kerry Motorsport News can reveal new information that might shape your journey.

Many of our readers use M7 Limerick to Dublin motorway for other reasons too. 

Our message – watch your speed – we don’t support speeding on the road, we do on race tracks and rally stages but it is easy to forget when you are cruising on a motorway.

New average speed cameras will be introduced between Junction 26-Nenagh (West) and Junction 27-Birdhill, in the coming weeks. 

Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), the Roads Safety Authority and An Garda Síochána have to yet publish the “go live’ date, but it is going to happen.

Neither have they advised on the specific locations of the cameras. 

The installation of the cameras commenced yesterday, March 8 and the three government agencies have assured the wider public that the objective is to “secure compliance, not prosecutions”.

An Garda Síochána Superintendent Tom Murphy; “This system will save lives and make our roads safer. An Garda Síochána are delighted to work with TII and RSA to implement this project.”

Ahead of the roll out of the project the following was determined.

Key Data for the M7 Corridor J21 to J28 (2017 Figures)

• 41% of cars were exceeding the 120 km/h speed limit.

• 31% of cars were travelling at up to and including 135 km/h 

• 10% of cars were travelling above 135 km/h

• Only a 2% reduction in cars travelling at above 135 km/h in response to adverse weather
