Are carriageway widths on Irish motorways narrower than those in the UK?

    And so, in the wake of the Batman shootings, some bright spark suggests we issue shotguns to drivers. I think I need to inspect your brain. :rolleyes:
    When he posted that way back in 2010, said shootings hadn't taken place :D

    What harm? Interesting thread. I for one am happy it was bumped

    The Irish lanes always felt good and wide to me. The only thing that ever made the road feel narrow was the proximity of the central concrete barrier, but you get over that very quickly.

    Also the position of the cats' eyes make the 1st lane feel very narrow. Why are the cats' eyes actually on the lane? If you're on a bus it's a bumpy ride as the bus cannot fit entirely in the lane without driving over them!

    To the OP,

    I've been to the UK a good few times and the carriageway widths for motorways on both sides of the pond are about the same.

    All the best,

    But when the UK's system is seen to work why bother reinventing the wheel?
    Well if the UK spec. is so good how do you explain the M90 in Scotland where good portions of it have NO hard shoulder at all! The only motorway I have ever been on anywhere, not to have a hard shoulder. (Except in a tunnel!)

    Except the port tunnel of course

    Other parts of the M50 have no shoulder, between r110 and N4.
    Also M1 above Broadmeadow estuary
