This was last week. We actually were driving up one of these back roads, only to find out by accident that these were cut off due to the placing of the new overbridges.
Passed Borris in Ossary, the final surfacing is going in for the new roundabout for the M7 link.
Guys I have bad news, which is what is what was on my mind the last week. It looks like the M7/M8 is going to be delayed further from the way I have seen the works over the last few weeks. The Castletown scheme is pacing fast for the last few weeks. To prove my point. The Castetown scheme ends at Borris in Ossary and the reason why they are advancing on this scheme of the M7/M8 leg here, is because the Castletown section will more than likely finish around 2010 anyway, so they have to complete this link for the Castletown leg to rejoin the N7 at Borris in Ossary. So you can bet that the M7/M8 will be the last of the entire South west motorway puzzle
The Mountrath N7 flyover still looks abandoned since last week.
Mountrath and Abbeyleix
So am I right in saying we will have Two motorways M7/M8 dumping at Mountrath and Abbeyleix in 2010 What do you reckon?
