M50/M1 pics

Folks,

A series of photos showing the route between M50 junction 4 (Ballymun) heading north towards the M1, including the new D3M section between junctions 3 and 4.

1. M50 northbound approaching junction 4.

2. Approaching junction 3, the interchange with the M1. All M1/M50 movements are free-flowing, with access to the Malahide road requiring use of the roundabout.

3. Five lanes for this short section approaching the interchange.

4. Swinging left towards the M1. The right-hand two lanes are actually for the M50 Dublin Port tunnel, but they're not signed M50 for some reason.

9. The section between junctions 3 and 4 has just recently been upgraded to D3M. It was previously two lanes in each direction and heavily congested at the commuting peak hours.

13. No room for a hard shoulder across the estuary now that it has been widened to 3 lanes each direction.

14. Lane drop at junction 4, Lissenhall.

15. Only two lanes each way from here to the border, but still plenty of room in the central reservation for widening.
