They were still there yesterday anyway, both directions. Now displaying 421.
Adhering to the speed is nothing whatsoever to do with the contractors. It is for the gardai only and they will not enforce 60kmh.
They will and have stopped people doing over 100kmh
as for 6pm onwards - maybe have a look at 7am and you'll see them all working, but you're probably asleep at that time.
7am to 4.30pm is the standard work time on the site.
Some sub contractors who work is not dependent on other contractors will work different hours (eg - shrubbery and topsoil clearance).
I just do not understand the utter whiniung that comes form some posters - especially when it obvious that they have no experience whatsoever of construction or project management. Two lanes have been kept open at all times - just as two lanes have been there all along.
Traffic if anything is flowing better except when there's a breakdown or crash - but there has been a dramatic reduction in rear end accidents, so flow is surprisingly better than expected. But no-one is pointing this out as they can';t possibly say a good word!
I just wish the negative ninnies would shut the f up with their whining
Up to today I only use the N/M7 going down. But today I had reason to use both directions, and yes I saw the 'scoreboards' there. Must have missed the one going down on Friday evening. Sorry.
I'm sure the numbers are made up anyway.
Very presumptuous aren't we? FYI, My day starts at 07h00 in Maynooth, so I leave Newbridge around 06h00, but I go the back road via Caragh & Clane ( when there is no frost or snom ), so have no use for the M/N7.
Not sure if relevant to thread but I have a question regarding the M7/M9 merge. I know it's possible to merge onto the M9 from the M7 when travelling from Dublin, but is it possible to merge onto the M7 from the M9 travelling north from the Tinryland junction? Can't decipher it from google maps- it looks like the M9 sort of becomes the M7 as you travel towards Dublin.
Like hearing from Carlow towards Dublin? Yeah the M9 ends and the only way to go is merge onto the northbound M7. You can't go southbound on the M7 (towards Limerick) from the M9 north, to do that you'd need to go off at Kilcullen and head for Newbridge.
This is the merge part here. You go under the M7 and then up onto the merge with it.
That's what I thought. Thanks for the confirmation
What was the reasoning behind that does anyone know? It's the same with the M8/M7 merge.
I think I read before that the M8 was meant to have one originally, which is why the first junction heading south (Manor Stone) is number 3 and not 2.
I rarely drive this section myself but this is a problem I find on the M50 regularly I usually do a little over the limit on that and regularly have beamers and bmws tailgating me. Happened when I drove that section of the M7 a while ago its a really unconfortable limit to be imposing on that section when no workers are actually there.
