Re: Re: Welcome to Ireland’s ugly urban sprawl
So should we not have motorway / dual carriage way linking major urban centres ? it is the standard in all other european countries. I just drove back from Cork, It took 3 hours and ten minutes, the last time it took well over four … are we suggesting that a two lane road passing through several towns is an acceptable way to link the countries two largest cities ?
Sure roads aren’t the answer but to my mind motorway linking dublin with cork limerick galway & waterford is a standard that should be met …
Aside from faster journey times, from a safety view point, its essential … night time visibility is dreadful with on coming headlights in your face … there’s no mystery behind our road death figures … the two lane national raods are dreadful.
