I was digging into the Rathimorissy services idea and found this thing:

Rathmorissy services 3 proposed sites
by Geogregor*, on Flickr

It seems that building services at the junction is still an option. Is that true?

Let's say yes. How they can make it accessible from the roundabout while they have designated left turning slips:

Rathmorissy Junnction services proposal
by Geogregor*, on Flickr
I guess the only option would be underpass or overpass over the slip road.

The images are in the PDF rom Galway County Council website:
http://www.galway.ie/en/services/roa...m6servicearea/

Slightly different question:
User M17 on boards.ie linked traffic movement projections for the Rathimorissy Junction.

Clearly it was done a while ago but does anyone know when? Before or after the economic crash?

It is northern part of the scheme. It would be nice to see flyover video for the rest of it.

There must be something....I hope

At least they could show Rathmorrisey junction itself. One of the most spectacular bits of the whole scheme.

It looks like an extradosed bridge type.

It will be. 2x2 profile, 900m long, 36m above water. It will be the longest bridge in Ireland.
It will be one of the most spectacular construction sites in Ireland for a while so I'm really looking forward to start of it.

EDIT:

I just discovered that website for the M11 Enniscorthy Bypass was launched:
http://www.m11gtoe.ie/

Not much stuff on it yet. I would like them to publish some more detailed maps, maybe even some site specific drawings.

They also published first newsletter:

You can clearly see how progress on the northern section differs from the southern section. I'd say M17 completion 06 or 07/17 with the M18 a year behind.....if not more.

Apparently there is some movement on the N25 bypass.

According to forumers on boards.ie there was sighting of a barge passing which will do site investigation for the new Barrow Bridge:

Two more shots from the N25.
According to folks from boards.ie the rig is now in place of the future extradosed bridge over the Barrow Estuary

New shot of the rig at work:

By the way, a while ago there was tender for production of video of the construction:

Anyone from Skyscrapercity interested?

N40 Cork bypass.

Westbound from Kinsale Roundabout (airport exit) to N71 (Bandon Roundabout):



Eastbound from Bandon Roundabout (N71) to Dunkettle (wezel z N25 i M8 ktory ma byc w najblizszych latach przebudowany):


I have to say I'm lucky because every time I drive through the infamous Dunkettle traffic is flowing smoothly.

I know it's been a while but it still feels weird seeing the Cork bypass as N40!

It seems that the website of the N25 New Ross Bypass was launched:
http://www.n25newross.ie/

There is a decent map:


And they claim that once the bridge construction starts (apparently piers will start later this year) there will be webcams.
