    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:D

    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.

    http://www.galwaynews.ie/25158-major-works-begin-n17
    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.

    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:

    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

    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.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,106 antoobrien


    The widening of the M9-N7 interchange looks to have started based on posts in the M7 thread and AAroadwatch traffic alert, probably worth adding.

    Should also add in the N67 improvement Ballinderreen - Kinvara was under construction last year (as of October, the last time I was out that direction, it was in construction).

    Just as there is no confusion, the widening of the M9 - M7 interchange is a totally different project to the proposed widening of M7 to 3 lanes from Naas to M9, this project will probably commence this year in conjunction ot the new Kerry Foods development in Millenium Park as I believe it's part of the deal

    Now that we have some projects upcoming or under construction, is it worth renaming the thread to include estimates for completion dates?

    Yes.

    Its quite outdated as it stands - one of the projects is complete at this stage!


  • Registered Users Posts: 728 robert muldoon


    I heard yesterday that the purchase of lands for the bye pass of Sallins is near conclusion,this all links in to the widening of M7 to M9

    anyone else hear anything on this project?

    Nope, but the Osberstown interchange (used be called Millennium Park) is apparently going to be part of it, according to Kildare Co Co.

    Thanks for the list. Shouldn't the N40 be marked as completed, though?


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Motoring & Transport Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 59,578 Mod ✭✭✭✭ L1011


    I would expect the next phase of the Dungloe-Glenties N56 project to go to tender imminently, it was meant to late last year. Land is CPOed and extensive geotech work has been done. This is the hardest section of the route and the most badly needed, as its bypassing the Gweebarra Bends.

    Add the N77 Ballynaslee realignment to that between Durrow and Ballyraggett Co. Kilkenny. Started in November '13.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,688 ✭✭✭ rameire


    N78 Athy Southern Distributor road has been given the green light
    The monies, from the Dept. of Public Expenditure and Dept. of Transport, will be released in a phased basis.

    is likely to cost €32 million.

    may have to wait a couple of years though

    Martin Heydon, says
    "the commitment is not only there to give ,money to Kildare County Council to progress the detailed design and go to planning, but also to have the money in place for 2015 and 2016, to see the road completed in full

    START DATES: M17/M18 FINISH DATES: M11 N5 N7 N25 possibly? We did have finish dates in the past when we actually had road schemes worth waiting for...
