M7 Nenagh to Limerick

Looking north and south from a local overbridge at dromin. For those who want to get to it, its one of the first local roads after the motorway crosses over to the left of the current N7.









Viewing northbound at the overbridge south of daly's cross. (notice the local road to the left, just realised there was one afterwards, will be good for access for mainline photos.)




Viewing southbound




Zoomed in at southbound, the pillars are now either piledriven or cut off.




The northern section of the nenagh bypass completed about 2km of motorway but restricted to one lane. I did enjoy the drive through here however very smooth surface.

N21 Castleisland-Abbeyfeale

Not dc but Irish road nontheless. This is the N21 Castleisland-Abbeyfeale which was completed in 2006. Pic was taken from the Kilmaniheen overbridge which was the only overbridge constructed in the scheme. The rest were underbridges.

I've got a question i hope some of you might be able to answer:

How long are the on-ramps in ireland, and do you merge or do you have to yield when you enter the motorway?

Irish drivers arent very good, so generally when merging its a free for all or who has the bigger car.

The M7/M8 motorway scheme, County Laois, 27 June 2009.

Some major advancements made here in recent weeks thanks to the fine weather:

The M8 mainline just west of Ballacolla off the R434 looking north:



The M8 R434 overbridge:


The view south from that overbridge:


The same image enlarged:


The view north from the (under construction) R434 overbridge:


Another shot of the M8 mainline lookin' north passing under the M7 in the distance (I think):


The M7 R434 overbridge, not yet open but almost ready:


M7 mainline looking north from that overbridge:


And the M7 mainline looking south from the same bridge:

Also junctions on Irish motorways are grade seperated and are up to european spec in regards to merging length.

The Second programme of PPP's has been reformed, N7 Newlands Cross and the N11 havnt been put second in line after the N17/N18 scheme.



http://www.nra.ie/Publications/Downl...e,16119,en.pdf



.... and here is the consortia shortlisted for thr N17/N18 scheme



http://www.nra.ie/Publications/Downl...e,16402,en.doc

The best one IMO looks to be DirectRoute which includes the likes of roadbridge and sisk.

Is it becoming more and more popular to display E-numbers on signs ?

Forgive my ignorance here but I don't see the relevance of numbering E routes on Irish roads. The country is bounded by sea with no physical connection to pan-European routes, and I as far as I'm aware, Northern Ireland doesn't use them either.
Much (if not most?) of Ireland's traffic travelling to and from the continent hass to pass through Britain (which doesn't use E numbering) en route to Europe. If freight lorries etc can find their way along the M20, M 25, M1, M6 and A55 to Holyhead, they'll hardly require a signposted E route last encountered somewhere near Calais to direct them through a confusing choice of routes from from Dublin to Galway

E route numbers have started to be included in signs for the last 2 years or so. Some information for those who wish to use it, perhaps Britain should do likewise.

Nothing wrong with using E numbers. The UK should follow suit, in all honesty.

A nice picture (not mine) of the N25 Waterford bypass, with the bridge, and at the bottom the southern terminus of the M9 meeting the roundabout.
