Modifications to make 1,500 pedestrian crossings in Dublin city touchless are expected to cost €600,000.

They are the first of thousands of new sensors to be rolled out by the city council over the coming months to limit the spread of Covid-19.

The Irish Independent reports the technology, that allows people to avoid touching the crossing button, will cost €200 each.

Each crossing will have two of the sensors, with one on each side of the road.

The changes are being funded through a Government stimulus package.

The city centre is the first to see the adaptions, which will be rolled out to the suburbs over time. However there is no figure on what the overall cost will be.
