What are those cables on the road at Tarbert?

    if you are coming out of Tarbert, heading to Foynes, there are 3 pairs of black cables on the road. 1 pair is at the 50k sign, and another pair about 100yards before the sign, and the other 100yards after the sign.

    The cables may be connected to a box on one side of the road, but they are def not connected to anything on the other side.

    Anyone got any idea what they are?

    Monitoring how many vehicles pass.

    if they are counting cars, why are there three pairs? surely a car that passes one will pass all, so count is the same?

    ....well, they are gone now. Whatever info they were gathering, I guess they got it!
