The New Motorways

The Tralee Bypass is set to open very soon - nearing completion and it will bring a lot of relief to traffic in the Kerry town.




Meanwhile, the upgrade to the N40 Cork Ring Road with two new flyovers is also nearly finished.

The new flyovers on the N40 Cork Ring Road at the Sarsfield Road and Bandon Road junctions are now open to traffic - just some finishing up work left.

It's already making a huge difference to traffic in the south and west of Cork city.

The N3 Belturbet Bypass is partially open (section bypassing Belturbet town) as of today. This section involves a new bridge over the River Erne and will take heavy traffic away from the narrow main street of Belturbet and the narrow and twisty approach roads to the town.

Narrow and twisty approach roads to the town along which...... the speed limit is still bizarrely 100kph. There's one particularly evil corner that's marked as an ACCIDENT BLACK SPOT. However, according to the speed limit signs, it's perfectly fine to take it at 100kph.

Hardly surprising.

I just drove that route at the weekend and concur its a total disgrace! What peeved me the most is that you have to pay a €2.90 toll for the M4 which lasts all of about half an hour on that 3 hour drive! How on earth did they come up with that figure when its only €190 for the M1 which goes all the way to Newry?

One of the tolls is a toll on the M7 which allows them to collect a toll whether you are using the M8 to go in the Cork direction or the M7 in the Limerick direction.

The second toll is for bypassing Fermoy.

That in itself is worth the money.

I understand this, but why put a toll charge on a bypass? They should be encouraging people to use the motorway and not bypass the toll booths.

you can read it here about how the government will have to pay out €30m for under used toll booths...in the next few years.

These fabulous new signs have appeared all along the M4 (and N bit near M50) and along the M7.
1. Every half KM, is that really necessary?
2. On a pole, is that really necessary?
3. Quite a large signs, is that really necessary?
4. Is that really necessary?

Ordinarily, I love Leo, but I'm not happy with this roadside clutter and expense, Mr Varad kar !

Yeah i was thinking the same earlier. They look the same as the signs for the Motorway parking areas. Confusing in my opinion.
