Dublin City Council is starting to roll out contactless pedestrian buttons around Dublin as part of the effort to slow the spread of Covid-19.
The new contactless pedestrian buttons have already been put in place on O'Connell Street, Dame Street and Nassau Street as well in other areas of the city centre.
Dublin City Council has stated that the rollout has begun in the city centre and will move outwards throughout the DCC area. The technology is expected to be introduced in Dublin suburbs in the coming weeks and months.
