There has already been 6,572 prosecutions issued to motorists since the 60km/hr speed limits were introduced along the M7 roadworks in late November.

There are currently signs on the motorway displaying these latest figures.

Going at the current rate, and with another month to go before the scheduled end-of-April finish date, there could be a further 1,500 issued.

Two GoSafe speed detection vans have been regularly parked on both sides of the motorway since a major clampdown began on November 26.

The speed restriction operates between Junctions 8 and 11 where an extra lane is being added in both directions or 13.5km.

* 3.7km Sallins Bypass and M7 Interchange
* A Third Lane for 13.5km
*5 Bridges
*17 Sign Gantries
