Adhering to the speed is nothing whatsoever to do with the contractors. It is for the gardai only and they will not enforce 60kmh.
They will and have stopped people doing over 100kmh
as for 6pm onwards - maybe have a look at 7am and you'll see them all working, but you're probably asleep at that time.
7am to 4.30pm is the standard work time on the site.
Some sub contractors who work is not dependent on other contractors will work different hours (eg - shrubbery and topsoil clearance).
I just do not understand the utter whiniung that comes form some posters - especially when it obvious that they have no experience whatsoever of construction or project management. Two lanes have been kept open at all times - just as two lanes have been there all along.
Traffic if anything is flowing better except when there's a breakdown or crash - but there has been a dramatic reduction in rear end accidents, so flow is surprisingly better than expected. But no-one is pointing this out as they can';t possibly say a good word!
I just wish the negative ninnies would shut the f up with their whining
