A number of locations across Donegal are to undertake periodic speed limits.One of these is the area close to Illistrin National School on the outskirts of Letterkenny on which was the scene of a incident in which schoolchildren narrowly avoided an accident.The school is one of the locations for which approval has been sought and granted by the TII for a periodic speed limit on the National Routes. This will be implemented in early 2017 together with the rest of the speed limit changes arising from the speed limit review.The DRAFT ROAD TRAFFIC (SPECIAL SPEED LIMITS) (COUNTY OF DONEGAL) BYE LAWS 2016 are currently at Public Consultation Process.Notice was given that Donegal County Council, in exercise of the powers vested in it by Section 9 of the Road Traffic Act 2004 has prepared Draft Speed Limit Bye Laws 2016 for the Administrative area of Donegal County Council following a countywide review of speed limits in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Department of Transport Tourism and Sport for the application of speed limits in Ireland.i. The purpose for which the Draft Speed Limit Bye Laws 2016 are to be made is toprovide for a more appropriate speed limit on public roads and public roads withincertain housing estates. ii. The Draft Speed Limit Bye Laws 2016 together with Explanatory Maps are availablefor inspection during normal office hours (Mon – Fri from 9.00am – 12.30pm and from1.00pm – 5.00pm) at the Council’s Offices at –(a) Carndonagh Public Services Centre, Main Road, Carndonagh(b) Donegal Public Services Centre, Drumlonagher, Donegal Town(c) Letterkenny Public Services Centre, Neil T Blaney Road, Letterkenny(d) Milford Public Services Centre, Milford(e) Road Section Office at The Base Enterprise Centre, Railway Road, Stranorlar(f) Road Section Office at County House, Lifford(g) Dungloe Public Services Centre, Gweedore Road, Dungloeduring the period of 30 days commencing on the date of first publication of this notice 6th of October 2016iii.

A team of researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Building Technologies Research and Integration Center is working on the design for a new type of clothes dryer that uses high-frequency vibration rather than heat to take moisture out of fabric.Researchers are confident that they have proven that the concept works, and are under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to build a full-scale prototype by August 2016. Work to date has been with very small devices called pizo-ceramic transducers, on the order of 2 inches in diameter. But the potential for energy savings already seems enormous.Dr. Ayyoub Momen, the lead researcher on the project, said that this type of dryer has the potential to reduce total electricity consumption in the U.S. by 1%.“That’s a huge number for a single technology,” he said by telephone. “This is a game-changing technology.” Faster drying times, less energyA small test transducer can dry fabric many times faster than heat. According to Momen, fabric that takes 20 to 30 minutes to dry by heat will dry in 14 seconds with the pizo-ceramic devices they’ve been using. Overall, energy consumption would be three times less.Momen likens the drying process to what happens when someone shakes out a wet towel and dislodges droplets of water. The transducer speeds up the process many, many times. (Momen was reluctant to say exactly what the frequency of vibration is.)According to an article posted at Clickgreen.org extracted moisture would be in the form of an extremely fine mist of cool water droplets just 1 micron in diameter.Once the device has been scaled up to full size, Momen expects that it will be capable of drying 10 lb. of wet clothing in about 20 minutes using 1/3 the energy of a dryer using heat. The process also takes less of a toll on clothing.In the second year of the project, Momen’s team will see how a number of the transducers work in a conventional dryer drum, but no one is sure what a fully developed appliance would look like. “Honestly, we don’t know what we’re getting with the design of the machine,” he said. It might even be in the form of a flat plate.Momen said it might be possible to have a dryer using the technology on the market in five years at a price competitive with conventional dryers. GE Appliances is the research group’s industrial partner and is contributing 20% of the development costs. The rest of the money is coming from the Department of Energy.
