Pipeline motorway projects in Ireland are a rarity these days, but the Environmental Impact Statement for the M28 Cork-Ringaskiddy motorway has been published @ www.n28cork-ringaskiddy.com for anyone interested.

Some drone videos of Enniscorthy bypass. They were shot in March so not the most up to date stuff, but there is so little updates from this project that it is still worth having a look:

I'm not sure if it is right thread (or the GB one) but it seems that York Street Interchange might get going, according to the agreement between Tories and DUP:


York Street Interchange is a junction where M2, M3 i Westlink expressways currently meet at signalized intersection:

I think NI goes in both/either thread. I'd say that, while interesting here, it's more on topic in the GB thread as it's the UK government promising a UK-supporting NI party money to build stuff in NI (in order to gain the DUP votes that they don't need given that the DUP won't risk seeing Corbyn living in Downing Street by toppling a Tory minority government).

Latest pictures from the M11 project website:





This website is awful, small photos, few of them and rarely updated. Sometimes I wonder who does it.

I was around New Ross last weekend so decided to have a look at the new Barrow Crossing site which will be part of the New Ross bypass along the N25:

We are on the west (Kilkenny) bank of the river Barrow, looking from the south:

View to the east (Wexford) side of the river:

What is this structure rising towards the right of the main pillar?

After a bit of a detour I'm approaching the site from the north. It really will be an impressive bridge:

Now, what is tris structure just a bit south of the main pillar at the pink rock?

On the east side they are not really racing ahead:

It is going to be great view from here once construction progresses a bit further:

DSC06731

And some slightly blurry shots from the distance, give good overview of the crossing site:

DSC06910
by Geogregor*, on Flickr


DSC06911
by Geogregor*, on Flickr

You can see they are starting constructing slip forms for the deck, on the far east of the bridge:

DSC06916

DSC06913

Judging from the progress of the pillars the bridge deck will be probably constructed from the west to east.
Does anyone knows if they will push the bridge deck from the bank of the river or will it be constructed on top of the pillars from the suspended scaffoldings and slip forms?

Anyway, that's it from me. I have to say they are taking their time. I thought the project would be a little bit more advanced ans the site a bit more active at the peak of the construction season. OK, it was Saturday, around 1pm, but it is also the beast weather for construction in Ireland and the days are long.

That looks like it's going to be a hell of a bridge.

Thanks. I wanted to check it out myself as the updates on the website are not the best or most up to date
If they need help all they need is to pay me for flights to Cork and car rental and I will be taking photos

Anyway, a few shots of the N25, somewhere here will be the new junction leading towards the bridge and the bypass:

Looking eastbound (here north really) towards New Ross:

DSC06684
by Geogregor*, on Flickr

And westbound towards Waterford:

DSC06687
by Geogregor*, on Flickr

New junction, (roundabout really), will be located somewhere beyond this bend:

DSC06688
by Geogregor*, on Flickr

Typical stretch of N25 further west:

DSC06660

DSC06661

Long stretches of the N25 have wide hard shoulders. I wish the 2+1 profile was used on more sections. One can get really stuck behind some slow moving groups of vehicles.

Some of my videos of N25 around Waterford.

First the Waterford bypass eastbound and then stretch of N25 to the place where the New Ross bypass will begin:


The second video shows driving back westbound, it starts on the R710, outer orbital road to the south of Waterford, then joining the N25 and heading to place where the N72 splits from the N25.

Here is drive from Bandon to Kilworth (close to Fermoy).

We are following N71 (busy road leading to Cork, luckily at this time of day most traffic was heading in the opposite direction) then Cork ring road (N40) where we get stuck in traffic queueing for the Dunkettle interchange (awaiting upgrade to free flow) and finally motorway from Cork to Dublin (M8)

M7

M7 motorway set to be widened to three lanes at Naas


Traffic congestion on the M7 in Co Kildare is set to be eased with a €120 million, three phase upgrade to the State’s second busiest motorway.

The contract to widen the existing M7 motorway from two lanes to three lanes in both directions has been awarded to SIAC/Colas JV, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced yesterday.

The widening will take place for a distance of about 14km, between Junction 9 Naas North, at Maudlins - site of the Perpetual Motion Ball – and the M7/M9 interchange at Junction 11.

The full scheme is to be completed by 2020.
Full report by the Irish Times: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/irel...naas-1.3229645

M7 does appear to have a provision for the expansion to six lanes, the central reservation is fairly wide.

N7 from Dublin to Naas already is a six lane dual carriageway. It narrows down to four lanes where M7 starts.
