    Personally I don't see it as an "either or" situation, I'm fully in support of both the GCOB, improved cycle facilities and bus lanes




    There may be some people implacably opposed to either the GCOB or its chosen route, because of environmental considerations.

    But has anyone in this forum framed it as either/or in the manner you suggest above?

    Yes, but you as usual haven't addressed the question I asked - how are these good for motorists?



    "As usual"? Please desist.

    I'm still mulling over my response to your re-submitted list -- another perspective is gradually suggesting itself.

    Btw, I have asked you this question at least twice and you have not responded: can you name a single solitary one-way street in all of Galway City that exempts cyclists?

    While you're at it, can you identify a single solitary banned right turn in all of Galway City that also exempts cyclists?

    For the record, I'm waiting to see if Tremelo (or any of the other mods) will come back to me about anything I've said on here because I'm aware that there are a few things I've said are borderline (despite trying to stay on the right side of the posting rules), but I'm willing to take the risk because I believe that they need to be said.

    No infraction for you or anyone else.

    More generally, having just spent the past three hours reading through the last 300 posts, I think that this is an incredibly circular thread, with the same points being raised again and again and again. And again.

    15 minutes to cross the quin at 11am due to some quite minor works. Can't imagine what it was like at 8am

    I presume they are doing these works at non peak times?

    See the following: http://www.galwaycity.ie/GeneralNews/260811_02.html

    Here is what is planned for next week at this junction.
    N6/Newcastle Road (N59) Junction

    Works at the N6/Newcastle Road (N59) Junction will continue next week and remain in place until October 1, 2011. To facilitate these works, members of the public should note that it will be necessary to close the Newcastle Road (N59) at the N6 junction to vehicular traffic wishing to access or cross the N6 over the period Tuesday September 27 to Saturday October 1, 2011. To minimise disruption to traffic, the road will remain open at peak times and a significant portion of works will be undertaken at night-time. Road users should be aware that the Newcastle Road (N59) through the junction will be closed from 10:00 to 16:00 and from 19:00 to 07:00. Alternative routes for traffic will be via signposted diversion routes.

    Diversion Routes

    Traffic approaching the junction from the University Road side of the junction are requested to divert at the Newcastle Road/Old Seamus Quirke Road junction and travel via the Browne Roundabout (to the rear of University College Hospital). Traffic approaching the junction from the Moycullen Road are requested to divert onto the Thomas Hynes Road at the junction adjacent to the Westwood Hotel and travel via the Browne Roundabout (at the rear of University College Hospital). The Newcastle Road approaching the junction from both sides will be open to local traffic but through traffic will not be permitted (except emergency vehicles). A map of these diversion routes is available below.

    they're closing at non peak times. Its down to one lane or otherwise delayed at all times.

    My journey was, as usual, required and mode unshiftable.

    Will need a thread title change so - no longer a bypass or a motorway.

    N6 City Ring Road necessary?

    What is the difference between a thread titled "M6 - Galway City Ring Road [planning decision pending]" and a thread titled "M6 - is the Galway City Ring Road necessary"?

    It is a motorway. Ballymoneen Road to Coolagh at least anyway. The non motorway remainder is effectively a Barna bypass.

    Nope it is not. It will be the N6 not M6. Will be M6 from Oranmore junction.

    It's motorway from the existing M6 to west of the N59 junction. This is made absolutely clear in all documentation published recently

    Check the newspaper notice on the website and it shows you a map of what's motorway and what's not
