KCC to install flashing lights at five schools in Killorglin area

Flashing lights to reduce speeding are to be installed outside five schools in the Killorglin electoral area. Kerry County Council says the lights will be finished by the end of next month. It’s council policy to install flashing lights outside schools where the speed limit is above 30 miles an hour. The local authority believes it’s an effective tactic in reducing the speed of motorists. Boheeshil, Cullina, Caragh Lake, Kilgobnet and Douglas National Schools will have the lights installed by the end of next month. According to The Council’s road design department, it costs around 7 thousand euro to put in the lights although for 2 of the schools, funding came through the clar programme. The traffic safety measure’s been introduced in some 15 schools across the county this year.
