SOS phones for motorways

ALL motorways in Ireland will be equipped with emergency SOS phones before the end of the year.

The National Roads Authority (NRA) has made the pledge to install motorways with the life-saving phones.

A retro-fit programme is under way to locate the phones along motorways which were previously not fitted with them.

Anyone who stops to make a call from any of these emergency phones is promptly connected to the Emergency Services Operations Centre.
