not to mention that the M17 will finish a bare 40km from the biggest town in Mayo, Castlebar, and only 20km from Claremorris and Ballyhaunis.
And Westport is "behind" Castlebar so also benefits from the motorway linkup as they have to go via Castlebar where they are only 40km from the Motorway.

when that is finished you will suddenly see mayo people clambering to have the road to Tuam from Mayo being upgraded as the N5 will become irrelevant to a swathe of the south of the county!

The ballindine section to Milltown(all in Galway) is the worst piece of road between sligo and Limerick, so i will be looking for it to be done. Five people killed on it in the just the last year alone.
The Mayo section is relatively okay, then they need to start on the curry to colloney section

M17 won't be tolled based on the information I've researched.

This has been discussed a few times on the M17/18 project thread.

There is no planning permission for a toll (let alone 2 as has been suggested) and changing the plans now would probably require extra land to be purchased.

Unless they go the M50 route with barrier free tolling,there will be no toll on this road. The barrier free option is costing the M50 operators a lot of money to run, so its unlikely that this will be a viable option for a new concession.

N17 Castletown bends scheme ( between Tuam and Milltown) starting this month. About 1km long. This scheme was originally tendered in 2008 but abandoned and retendered.

Realignment works between Tuam and Milltown at the Castletown junction are expected to begin in two weeks time.
Contracts were signed this week and work on the road is expected to be finished by the end of the year.
The Milltown-Ballindine stretch is earmarked for two schemes, probably not this year though.

Why is "expected" in quotes? Are you a born cynic?

In fairness how many times have we been told that NX/N11 will be starting "next quarter"?

I think a lot of people are in the "I'll believe it when I see them digging" camp when it comes to a lot of these projects.

Following from a post in a different thread, i've gone over my own records and noticed that the following schemes were all suspended in 2011 but have since been reactivated:

N2 Slane BP [note: refused PP but will likely be re-submitted]
N3 North of Kells - Cavan [surprised by this; doesn't seem very important]
N4 Collooney / Castlebaldwin [note: planned as SC instead of dual]
N5/N26/N58 Turlough to Bohola
N5 Westport to Turlough
M7 Naas - Newbridge 4 to 6 lanes
N8 Jct 19 Dunkettle Interchange
N11/N25 Oilgate to Rosslare Harbour
N17 Collooney to Tobercurry
N21 Adare BP
N22 Ballyvourney to Macroom
N24 Pallasgreen to Cahir
N25 Waterford to Glenmore
N52 Ardee Bypass
N56 Dungloe to Glenties (one part already u/c)
N56 Mountcharles to Inver
N59 Clifden to Oughterard
N59 Moycullen Bypass
N59 Westport to Mulranny
N69 Listowel By Pass
N81 Tallaght to Hollywood Cross
N86 Tralee to An Daingean

N6 Jct 20-22 Galway City Outer BP [note: still marked as suspended but likely to be reactivated once court battle is over]

M17/M18 Gort to Tuam (56.2km)
Both of the above PPP are 2013 Ministerial priorities; see point 4 via link.

Other potential projects:
M7 Widening Naas to M7/M9 Interchange ???

N56 Scheme ???

Definitely selection of Minor Works Schemes:
Overrun from Minor Works Construction Starts 2012
Progress to construction of Minor Works at Planning Stage 2012

In terms of 2013 commencements I cannot see anything else at present.

Corrections to any of the above (completed, under construction, commencements) most welcome.
