MOTORISTS in Dublin were warned yesterday not to be distracted by low-flying helicopters surveying train lines.
Commissioned by Irish Rail and undertaken by PDG Helicopters and Irish Helicopters, the aircraft are scanning DART overhead lines with a thermal imaging camera and checking for overheated parts.
"The aircraft will be flying quite low so people should be cautious," said Ian Baird from Irish Helicopters.
