Thanks I&P. The R402 looks like a fairly substantial job.
Great to see something going on!

The R402 there is horrible as-is. Satnav brought me over it on the way home from Portarlington one night where I decided the M7 was too far away to go back to - my mistake!

The R132 works seem to just be resurfacing, not the dualling which FCC have planned - as far as I know FCC want the R132 to be dualled from Quickpark to the county boundary eventually.

For all Notices under the seach-term 'road', please click here (you must enter 'road' in the first textbox) - there are many other notices for road overlay and reconstruction schemes. Other notices involve secondary works for major road schemes such as fencing contracts and archeological services.

Enjoy!
I've just completed my search on 'etenders' and updated my post accordingly!

I think that description refers to the tie-in between the old N4 and the proposed interchange link road.

A tribute to the Kenny/Gilmore regime that this thread has not been updated since July; a period when we have poured approx. €14 billion into Anglo and the other dead banks.

In fact, we have poured more money into dead banks to pay debts we never incurred than the entire spend on infrastructure since we joined the EU in 1973. Including the non-EU spending of the Celtic Tiger years.

And are you folk angry?

Shucks no! You'd rather spend endless hours and years debating whether the road between Dublin and Waterford really needed to be a motorway atall atall.
