    Probably more to do with the road widening project?

    They do need to widen it. The M7 is being widened to 3 lanes from the end of the Naas dual carriageway to the M9 junction.

    Sorry! my bad

    i agree they need to widen the m7. hell yes. its ridiculously slow at times.

    I meant the road works on the m9 , somewhere around kilkullen. I cant rename the thread title though i dont think.

    roadworks on the m9

    We're not the UK (or actually the rest of the known world really) - motorway services here usually charge the same prices as off-motorway stations. In the UK the fuel is unbearably dear and otherwise you're just getting prices back to vaguely normal with the 10% discounts on food that you can get with the AA or a load of other things.

    There are a couple of projects along the stretch N7/M7/M9. From memory, there will be: road widening / bridge works Sallins to Naas / services

    to echo the previous posters, the existing Irish services are VERY reasonably priced (fuel + shop/ cafe/ restaurant) and are a world away from what you'd pay in the UK or on the continent.

    At this stage I mainly stop at mc Donalds in Germany (and indeed in UK if I can find them) as you've free clean toilets and reasonably priced coffee.

    I'd agree with that except if you want an all day breakfast.
    €9.50 for a small ore-cooked fry? no thank you.

    is there anyplace online to get status updates on the constuction work?

    the fact that the motorway is limited to one lane there is getting a bit old at this stage, wondering when they will re-open the two closed lanes.

    Does anyone know which side they are having the petrol station on. I always thought they'd have two, but since the bridge is going in there - it must only mean 1.
