Just looking at that, who the [email protected]*k planned an outer ring road without a junction onto the Tuam road ???
Look closely and if you zoom in, there are some minor roads with junctions onto it, but none marked for the Tuam road.
I assume that's a mistake on the drawing, but you never can account for the stupidity of the public service.
Anyway, as said above, pie in the sky, especially with the cutbacks we're gonna have in the next couple of years.

It was the NRA, ( IDIOTS) who planned it.
They moved the proposed N/M17 to Athenry because " they thought it was unfair on the minority of motorists who would not be going to Galway to make them go towards the City."
On getting on the by-pass from the N17
" The bypass can easily be accesed by using the new N/M 17 at the junction near Athenry" I don't know who is worse, the NRA or local Politicians who back the NRA's plan. maybe it's time we startd electing competent people to represent us. The Motorway is going right through Limerick City with good access to the City, yet it's passing more than 10 miles east of Galway City with limited access. This farce is apparently good enough for us.:mad:
One prominent politican ( in Goverment ) even wants us to believe that the road to Athenry from Tuam will solve the Claregalway fiasco and thus, no need to " waste money on a bypass"

This is the real cost of our current economic woes. At a time when we were finally catching up with the rest of the world in terms of infrastructure, we're now standing still and a lot of badly needed projects will now be on hold or will never materialise.

I'd argue the real cost of our economic woes is the social cost in terms of emigration, repossessions, unemployment, suicides..not some piece of infrastructure.
