I've been travelling Limerick to Clonmel to work for the last two weeks and had totally forgotten just how bad the Limerick to Waterford road is, and in particular the stretch from Tipperary Town to the Clonmel by-pass. This is supposed to be a National Primary Route, yet in reality its surface and orientation make it nothing more than a National Secondary Route. Indeed, i've seen better regional roads in deepest West Limerick. I know that nationally its one of the less busier roads, but it still carries a good deal of traffic and lots of HGVs in particular. Is there any plans to upgrade the road in the near future??
*On a side note, the signage for Clonmel/Waterford while going through Tipp Town is very poor indeed. When you come to that mickey mouse excuse for a roundabout at the end of the town, there is a sign for Cashel and Cahir, but none for Clonmel (county's biggest town) or Waterford (main city in the south east region). Time to get those hands out of your pockets Tipperary SR Co Co!!
