Does anyone know what the situation is with the N2-N3 link road? Last I heard (in May), Fingal County Council had approved it and it was going out to tender with a view to starting in September. No sign yet, which is a pity.
It's an important link, which will be able to take traffic from the M50 straight into the east Blanch, Ballycoolin and Tyrellstown areas without having to trawl up the N3 and through Corduff.
From what I've read, it'll go from junction 2 of the N2 to somewhere around Hollystown, diverging into two routes - one to the N3 near Mulhuddart and another to the dual-carriageway near the second phase of Blanchardstown Corporate Park.
It's a great idea that could eventually incorporate another route from junction 2 of the N2 to the airport, giving Blanch (as well as Ashbourne/Ratoath) a direct link to the airport, relieving the M50 of traffic between J6 and J3/4 and making the old N2 (R135) even more redundant (probably for the best, down from 100 to 60km/h limit).
