    Does this mean so that the M7 will start in Borris-in-Ossory so this coming Friday and you won't have to drive through Mountrath anymore to get to Dublin??

    Any ideas when it will join up with the Nenagh motorway (excluding the bog part after Birdhill).

    You won't have to drive through Mountrath or Borris-in-Ossory.

    It will be Oct at least before Castletown to Nenagh is open.
    See that thread for more info...

    N18 Limerick Tunnel SRR Phase II: Due to open 16th July according to local media reports


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,809 ✭✭✭ swoofer


    the latest from clare people

    "he operators of the Shannon tunnel say its opening was not delayed because of the unavailability of Transport Minister Noel Dempsey to perform the ceremony in Limerick yesterday. It was expected that the new €660 road linking Clare to the new M7 motorway would be open for traffic this week-end but this has been delayed for at least a week. According to Tom King of Direct Route, who will operate the tunnel for the next 31 years, the opening was not delayed to facilitate government ministers. "This is the first tunnel to go through the very strict safety regulations now in place and I'm confident this should be completed early next week. In all likelihood, we are looking at opening it on Friday of next week", he said.

    N7/N18 Shannon Tunnel (LSRR-Phase 2) - July 27th (not June)

    What about Galway Outer Bypass? Is this project too "up-in-the-air" to include in this list?
    Was there any mention of it in yesterday's Infrastructure announcement?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,809 ✭✭✭ swoofer


    did it not say elsewhere. tunnel opens at 6pm today!!!

    Galway bypass is suspended, despite what Frank Fahey may lead you to believe. Even if it wasnt, it'll be years before it clears the courts.

    I wish you luck. They completed the CPO and fenced off the line of the N11 Rathnew-Arklow in 2004. Still nothing happening! :cool:

    They also demolished all the CPOed houses, etc there - bit further than just a fence!


  • Registered Users Posts: 36 ✭✭✭ neadycodd


    Any news yet of definite opening date?

    Signs of new activity at Powerstown end, new pile of plastic bollards and traffic cones, and a flashing sign warning of major changes to junction from Monday 16th August - must be soon now!

    It's on the front page of the Kilkenny People that the final stretch of motorway is due to open on the 9th September, almost €20 million under budget.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,808 Chris P. Bacon


    Well according to RTE the M9 is opening this day 3 weeks http://www.rte.ie/news/2010/0818/m9.html

    The same to me.I also think that i should check out Cullahill-Portlaoise to see how that's going. I'd reckon for that, still late 2010, but I haven't been up near the site in a while.
