N25 Cork to Midleton "Dual Carrigeway" question

    Was on a road trip lately and travelling from Cork to Midleton on the dual carrgeway and I could not believe my eyes, junctions that allow you to cross onto the median and wait for a gap in other traffic, houses with entrances facing onto the dual carriageway itself, I wondered how it was allowed to happen until someone pointed out that the houses probably predated the dual carriageway and that some bright spark came up with the idea to just build another road along side the existing one and hey presto dual carriageway.
    So, when was this thought up and built and by whom? And do the relevant authorities have any plans to address the safety hazards that are there?
