As far as I'm aware the Jack Lynch Tunnel has them cameras that measure the amount of time it took you to travel through the tunnel to tell whether you were breaking the speed limit or not. Last week I went through the tunnel twice, going the speed limit but literally every car in the other lane was flying by me, how do they not get caught?

There's no speed cameras in the tunnel or approaches

DPT has the only average speed system in Ireland.

When the speed limit suits and it's actually dangerous to speed, great idea. Tunnels are probably the only place on a dual carriageway where they should even be considered, and we've 33% of our major tunnels covered so far so it's probably only a matter of time

Would be no harm having them in the JLT, with the eejitry I see happening there in the evenings especially.

Limerick tunnel has the pop-up Garda behind the sign for the Clonmacken exit, just as you come out of the North side of the tunnel. Haven't encountered it myself but apparently can only be spotted last minute so I certainly make sure not to increase speed until I'm actually at the 100km/h limit signs just past that.

I find it odd that the Limerick tunnel has a dashed line for the lanes, i.e. lane changes are permitted in the tunnel. Doesn't seem a great idea.

Isn't there a few on the A1 near Lisburn - or there used to be anyway.
